Management of School of Science

Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Board has an important function in evaluating the research quality and supporting the development of the School.

The Scientific Advisory Board consists of international members and its tasks are:

  • To follow, evaluate and support the research and teaching activities of the School (with focus on research activities).
  • To give recommendations on new directions, openings and development activities of the School.
  • To evaluate the impacts of the development actions.

The SABs of Aalto schools visit the schools every 2-4 years, next time in November 2024. In 2024 the task of the SAB is to provide critical, forward looking recommendations on themes and questions selected by each department.
