Scientific Advisory Board
The Max Planck Institute is regularly scientifically evaluated in order to ensure the high quality and productivity of its work in the long term. A core component of this evaluation is the independent advisory board, 90% of whose members come from other research institutes, and over half of them are from abroad. The advisory board evaluates the work of the Max Planck Institute every two years. Its members are appointed by the president of the Max Planck Society.
The ongoing evaluation of the institute by the advisory board is complemented by further processes. In particular, this includes the appointment of new scientific members and directors to the Max Planck Institute, as well as the success of the institute in acquiring third party funds and the evaluation of their subprojects in special research areas with neighboring universities.
