The CDG Scientific Board (“Senat”) is the scientific advisory committee of the CDG and ensures the quality of the research. It gives form to the scientific framework of the funding programmes, assesses applications for the establishment of CD Laboratories and JR Centres as well as applications for changes to existing research units. It also evaluates the progress of research in the context of interim evaluations.

The CDG Scientific Board comprises around 40 highly qualified individuals from the worlds of science and business and is arranged into two commissions: the CD Scientific Board is responsible for CD Laboratories, the JR Scientific Board for JR Centres.
