Science Academy

The Science Academy has a high level advisory function for the overall research policy and priority setting, approving project funding policy and selection procedures, and may also act as a moderator for any scientific disputes that may arise within ongoing research projects managed by the grouping.

The Science Academy will evaluate project proposals from the scientific and technical point of view while the BoD of GEORG will take the final decision of funding based on the opinion of the Science Academy and with respect to the strategic importance as well as budgetary constraints.
