The Board of FAIR Collaborations (BFC) is a committee with three representatives nominated from each of the four experimental pillars: APPA, CBM, NUSTAR, and PANDA. The BFC represents, independently of the FAIR management, the collaborations' interests. The BFC chair is guest of the FAIR Council and takes part in the FAIR Project Progress Meeting Quarterly.
