InTribology Strategy Board
The Strategy Board is an independent body of all InTribology partners and the Center of Excellence within the COMET-K2 project "InTribology". At least two members should have a scientific focus, and at least two members an economic focus.
The task of the Strategy Board is on the one hand the evaluation of the implementation of the research program according to the funding contract and the agreed target values, and on the other hand to make recommendations if different views of InTribology agreement partners arise regarding the interpretation of the rules in the InTribology-Agreement.
The Strategic Board consists of the following 5 persons, two members being nominated jointly by the company partners and scientific partners, two members being nominated by the shareholders of the Center of Excellence, and the fifth member being nominated by the previously nominated 4 members. As a whole, the members of the Strategic Board optimally represent the selection specifications.
