Scientific Advisory Board

Gregor Mendel Institute

Research at the GMI is annually evaluated by the GMI Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB comprises independent international experts whose primary role is to provide the institute`s management, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, with feedback on the quality of the science being undertaken. The SAB meet over a two-day period (typically each November) during which time they conduct in-depth discussions with all Research Groups as well as Postdoc, PhD and technical staff representatives.
