Steering Committee

The Steering Committee

The CIN is overseen by a steering committee (SC) consisting of nine members, elected by the CIN members. It comprises the chairperson, the deputy chairperson, five CIN scientists, one university member from a scientific field that does not overlap with any of the CIN areas of research, and a representative of the office of the university rector. A central office, led by an executive officer, assists the chairperson and the steering committee and manages the day-to-day administration of the CIN. Over the years the SC's focus has switched from appointing selection committees and recruiting junior research group leaders and professors, to establishing the central  structures and to fostering scientific interaction among CIN members through the distribution of funding for pool projects and events such as conferences and workshops.
