Scientific Advisory Board

    • The Scientific Advisory Boards are the main instrument used by the Max Planck Society for the regular independent evaluation of its research institutes. 
    • The Scientific Advisory Boards are composed of internationally renowned scientists who are not members of the Max Planck Society. 
    • The main responsibility of the Scientific Advisory Board is to provide regular evaluations of the Institutes’ scientific performance. On the basis of these evaluations, the international board of scientists advises the Institutes and the Max Planck Society on the development of the Institutes’ activities and research directions.
    • This regular external evaluation serves to independently monitor and ensure the quality of the Institutes’ research and also to ensure the appropriate and efficient funding of the institutes' activities provided by the Max Planck Society.
