General Advisory Board

General Advisory Board

The General Advisory Board is an independent council that advises our institute on relevant societal, political and knowledge policy issues. It acts as an intermediary to our external public and is composed of different representatives from politics, business, academia and science, and the media. The General Advisory Board meets once a year in our institute and is appointed every six years. The participation in the General Advisory Board is voluntary.
