Council and board

Scientific council

The scientific council is twofold: internal and international. The internal council leads discussions and initiates projects on cross-cutting themes. External members advise IUEM on its scientific strategy. The International Scientific Council meets over several days once every two years. The international council’s external members produce a report to advise IUEM on its scientific strategy.
