Stee­ring Com­mit­tee & Aca­de­mic Board

The International Steering Committee convenes at least once per year to discuss questions of all scientific and organisational matters of the center. Its main role is to:

  • Determine the distribution of research resources and conferences.
  • Select Ela Bhatt professorship holders.

The Academic Board decides on the applications for membership of the ICDD Graduate School (PhD / Postdoc fellows) as well as on all academic issues related to the Graduate School. Its membership is identical to the International Steering Committee.
