External Advisory Board

The External Advisory Board regularly reviews the NCCR strategic plan and long range goals, monitors and assesses its programs and projects and makes recommendations to the directors and executive board. The Board meets annually on the occasion of the Annual Center Conference. At the end of each meeting, it presents an annual report to the NCCR executive board and governing bodies (the Rector of the University of Fribourg and the SNSF).
