Research at the IWF is regularly evaluated by our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB consists of independent international experts whose primary role is to provide feedback on the quality of scientific work to the institute's management and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. During the SAB meeting detailed discussions are held with all research groups.
