School of Science: governance

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 Boards of Aalto schools meet next time in November 2021 with the specific task to provide critical, forward looking recommendations on the strategic plan and roadmap of the school and its departments in light of Aalto’s strategy objectives, and review the implementation of the RAI 2018 recommendations.

The School of Science has its own Scientific Advisory Board—SAB.

The 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.
