Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) consists of 10-15 internationally renowned researchers; the members are chosen and approved by the Board of Trustees with the requirements that they are working in fields related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. They play an essential role in selecting the staff of the Institute, controlling their promotion and approving the scientific strategic plan of the Institute presented by the Director. The SAC pre-selects the scientific candidates to join the Institute and evaluates their performance, as well as the Research Programmes and the Institute as a whole. The SAC also makes a formal independent evaluation of the center that is a main tool in the strategic development of the Institute.
