CMM Board

The CMM Board is responsible for the quality of the research performed at CMM. To aid the Board in these matters we also have a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), consisting of internationally recognized and prominent scientists. The CMM Board normally meets 4-6 times per year.

The CMM Board has the responsibility to ensure that the activities of CMM follow the original intentions as stated by the by-laws of the foundation.

The main task of the CMM Board is to promote thorough and boundary-crossing research within the areas mentioned in the by-laws of the foundation. This includes assuming the utmost responsibility for the continuous evaluation of the CMM activities and that the evaluations lead to concrete actions.
