Scientific Advisory Board

The Synthesis Center is an initiative for all paleontologists.

They are represented by a scientific board of 8 international peers (PI Prof. Wolfgang Kiessling) who decide on the strategic focus and synthesis workshop topics.

The strategic expert body reflects a balance of young and more experienced scientists and has a much more equal gender balance than the overall subject.
