The SAB offers independent advice and assessment

Research at the GMI is annually evaluated by our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB consists of independent international experts whose primary role is to provide the institute's management and Austrian Academy of Sciences with feedback on the quality of the science being undertaken. The SAB meets over a two-day period in late Fall when they conduct in-depth discussions with all Research Groups as well as Postdoc, PhD, and technical staff representatives.
