International Science Advisory Board

The International Science Advisory Board (SAB) evaluates periodically the current research programmes of the NICPB and advises the Science Council to open new programmes and/or to terminate existing programmes. The Advisory Board also evaluates scientific and administrative capacities of the candidates to the posts of the Director and/or the heads of Laboratories and working groups.

The sessions of the Advisory Board take place as necessary and they are called by the Director. The last evaluation took place in September 2016 (see also Evaluations)
