GEI Strategy Forums

The strategy forums provide a space for the collaborative development of guidelines and rationales for cross-cutting institutional areas. Members contribute their academic knowledge, their specific skills, expertise and interests to these results-oriented, temporary forums, which support the Institute’s strategic and long-term positioning within its field.

Current Strategy Forums

    The members of the strategy forum on ‘Quality assurance and ethics’ review the current quality assurance measures in place at the Institute and identify any additional needs in this area. They also design measures to deal with ethical aspects of research questions.
