Board of Directors

The activities of the research center is headed by the Board of Directors, comprised of four experienced researchers and CERMEL founding members.

They are in charge of the administrative and research activities of CERMEL. The relationship with authorities and with partners is also an important responsibility, as is securing of funding for the center. However, every director is also a researcher and heads his own research projects.

This setup has proven beneficial for the center over the years and assures that research activities receive highest attention. This is of special importance for a structure that is entirely project funded and receives no core funding.
