EPSRC Call for Advisory Panel Nominations

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is seeking nominations for its three principal advisory bodies, the Technical Opportunities Panel (TOP), the User Panel (UP) and the Societal Issues Panel (SIP).
The panels consist of senior, experienced figures from the academic, industrial, and commercial communities, and help to formulate policy by advising the EPSRC Executive.
This is an open invitation to nominate people who you think would be suitable for the panels. It is also possible to self-nominate. More details as to how to do so are available here.
I'd always encourage staff to go for this: it gives an insight into the workings of a major funder, raises your profile, and - hopefully - offers an opportunity to influence policy. What's not to like?
