Historical Advisory Committee
The Historical Advisory Committee advises the management team of the Foundation on the global development of the Liberation Route Europe, its strategy and vision. They represent most the countries involved in the Liberation Route.
Its role is to define the historical scope of the Liberation Route Europe and supervize the content and research development.
This committee will be seconded by the LRE Expertise Network which gathers specialists from all relevant fields to the LRE (history, tourism, education, business development etc.). This operational network is assisting and advising the team when necessary.
