CRC1502 Scientific Advisory Board

It is our great pleasure to present DETECT’s Scientific Advisory Board, in short SAB

SAB will support CRC1502 by providing recommendations and comments on the scientific and structural development of the collaborative research centre, participate in internal evaluations and, provide advise on the preparation of the second funding phase proposal.

The Constitutional Meeting of the SAB will take place on 16 May 2024 in Bad Breisig after this year’s Retreat. The CRC1502 Management Team and Executive Board look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
