Board of Trustees

To support the institute in a more societal context and advise on scientific policy, a Board of Trustees is assembled for a period of six years. Apart from scientists, the members are representatives from politics and industry. They facilitate the communication between the institute and the public and contribute insights into diverse areas of science, politics and economics.

The Board of Trustees was recently reassembled and currently has twelve members.
