3D Matter Made to Order

Scientific Advisory Board

Scientific Advisory Board Meeting 2019Cluster 3DMM2O

The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of the Cluster 3DMM2O is composed of eleven internationally renowned scientists. The SAB plays a central role in ensuring the quality of the research of the Cluster by evaluating its progress and reviewing strategic developments. Chairman of the SAB is Prof. Dr. Marcus Weck (New York University) and Vice Chairman is Prof. Dr. Martina Stenzel (University of New South Wales). You can learn more about the SAB members by reading their short portraits.

The Scientific Advisory Board and the Industry Advisory Board will meet alternatingly each year.
