Scientific Advisory Board
At the beginning of 2003, the Center established a highly select Scientific Advisory Board whose members are leading specialists in their respective fields for the purpose of providing quality assurance. The purpose of the Board is to lend critical support in the management of the Center with regard to its scientific orientation and the user orientation of its service offerings, and in fundamental decisions pertaining to the Center’s continued development.
