Advisory Board

To guarantee excellent research and management structures, the Graduate School Materials Science in Mainz (MAINZ) has installed an external advisory board, consisting of six outstanding members from academia and industry. The advisory board supports MAINZ in general issues and, in particular, in its regular evaluation procedures. The board will meet every other year to evaluate the graduate school. Additional meetings may be suggested by the Director of MAINZ or by faculty members.
