Advisory Commitee School of Life Sciences and Facility Management

Practical relevance and quality

Each Institute has an advisory board at its disposal. This increases the practicality and quality of the education provided by the School, and encourages innovation and change in research and development.

The advisory boards consist of experts in key positions or with outstanding knowledge and experience in the relevant professional field. They come from backgrounds in industry or research in the life sciences and facility management as well as from education, academia, politics and alumni.

Each advisor’s term of service is four years; re-election is possible.
