Scientific Advisory Board

A Scientific Advisory Board of external scientists serves as an external consultant to the department, assisting the governance bodies by providing advice and perspective. Members of the Advisory Board are appointed by the Chairman after discussion with the Scientific Council. Ad hoc meetings with the Advisory Board are organized in case of need; for instance, it is valuable the role played by the Advisory Board in the tenure track evaluation.
