Scientific Advisory Board
- Scientific Advisory Boards are the main instrument used by the Max Planck Society for the regular independent evaluation of its research institutes.
- Scientific Advisory Boards are composed of internationally recognized scientists who are not from the Max Planck Society.
- The main responsibility of the Scientific Advisory Board is to provide regular evaluations of the Institute’s scientific performance. On the basis of these evaluations, the international board of scientists advises the Institute and the Max Planck Society on the development of the Institute’s research activities and directions.
- This regular external evaluation allows to monitor and to ensure the quality of the Institutes’ research independently and to also assure the appropriate and effective funding of the Institutes’ activities made available by the Max Planck Society.
- The Scientific Advisory Board of MPUSP will be announced soon.
