Wissenschaftlicher Beirat

The work of the Social Research Centre is accompanied by an external scientific advisory board. It consists of six academics who are experts in the sfs's field of work. The scientific advisory board advises the sfs on all questions of general research conception and supports it in the performance of its tasks.

The members of the Scientific Advisory Board are appointed by the Rectorate of the University of Dortmund for a period of three years on the recommendation of the Executive Board and the Research Council.

The Advisory Board usually meets twice a year at the invitation of the Director. The Director participates in the meetings of the Scientific Advisory Board.
