Structure of the Leibniz ScienceCampus
The central body of the Leibniz ScienceCampus is the Supervisory Board (SB), led by the campus speaker (Prof. Dr. Strunk). It consists of all principal investigators and one elected representative of the PhD students. The presence of each principal investigator is pivotal for a multidisciplinary project like ComBioCat to ensure that all the expertise is available. The SB will act promptly and appropriately on encountered risk factors and make the major decisions by majority voting concerning progress and focus of the project. The speaker will also be leader of the Directorate together with one professor of each of the participation institutions (Prof. Dr. Bornscheuer, Prof. Dr. Kragl, Prof. Dr. Weltmann), who jointly take care of governance and report to the SB.
An IP Committee ensures efficient IP protection and knowledge transfer. It consists of one member of each participating institution.
For sharing the wider aims of ComBioCat and the Leibniz Association with the wider public a Dissemination and Outreach Board is established. It will strive to deliver a range of events each year and assess progress on an annual basis.
Teaching and training of PhD students is considered to be equally important as science itself. A Training Committee ensures that these aspects are sufficiently taken into account.
An International Advisory Board helps define the scientific goals and course. Five internationally renowned scientists, being experts in all disciplines covered by ComBioCat, could be won over for this: Prof. D. Cole-Hamilton (University of St. Andrews, homogeneous catalysis), Prof. Dr. F. Faupel (University of Kiel, materials), Prof. Dr. R. Palkovits (RWTH Aachen, biomass conversions), Prof. Dr. J. Pérez-Ramírez (ETH Zürich, heterogeneous catalysis and engineering), and Prof. N. Turner (University of Manchester, biocatalysis).
