International Scientific Advisory Board

The International Scientific Advisory Board supports evolaris in its strategic orientation regarding research relevant issues, trends and research questions within the international Scientific Community. The consultative body confers and discusses planned publications, research strategies as well as ongoing research- and innovation projects with respective leaders of research areas. Therefore each leader of a research area (or cross area) is in permanent contact with one of the scientific mentors. This highly valuable know-how transfer and exchange of experiences contributes to the scientific excellence of evolaris and the integration into the international research community.
