New External Advisory Board

The new External Advisory Board for the Materials Science Area of Advance recently visited Chalmers to meet with the steering group. The board will provide a view from the outside on the Area of Advance.

​-    This is important so that we can calibrate what we do and our performance in an international perspective, says Aleksandar Matic, Director of the Area of Advance.

The board members have complementary competencies and a vast experience from different internationally leading environments in materials science. The board consists of:

Joachim Mayer, Aachen University
Christiane Alba-Simionesco, Université Paris-Sud, Laboratoire Léon Brillouin
Serena Best, University of Cambridge
Jeff Neaton, Berkeley Lab
Alexander Bismarck, University of Vienna

-    I expect the External Advisory Board to provide opinions and advice on how we can become even better in all aspects of Materials Science, says Aleksandar Matic.
-    I also expect them to be almost brutally honest in their feedback and lively dicussions! And that they next time let me win in boule.
