Scientific Advisory Board

In order to ensure the high quality and productivity of the Institutes’ research on a long-term basis, all Max Planck Institutes routinely undergo scientific evaluations by independent scientific advisors – the so-called Scientific Advisory Boards. All of the members from the MPIB’s Scientific Advisory Board come from other research institutions than the Max Planck Society (MPG), and most of them are from abroad. The members are appointed by the President of the MPG, and they evaluate the work of the Institute every three years. The appointment procedure for new Scientific Members and Institute Directors complements the Scientific Advisory Board's evaluation of the Institute as does the success of an Institute in acquiring third-party funding and the evaluation of the work of neighboring universities on subprojects in special research fields.
