Research Council

The Research Council supports and advises the Board of Directors and the Steering Committee in the strategic development of joint thematic fields in research, promotion of early-career researchers and scientific infrastructure and makes recommendations for granting funds from the Research Campus of Central Hessen. The Research Council is comprised of the Vice-Presidents responsible for research and, as scientific members, four scientists from each of the participating universities, and, in an advisory capacity, a representative of the Hessen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts.
