Academic Council to Natural Sciences

The Academic Council ensures collaboration and interdisciplinary development both within the faculty and across faculties, and thereby contribute to the overall development of the university.

The Academic Council ensures the continuous involvement of staff and students in order to make sure that these groups have influence on the management and development of the faculty. The council's task is to ensure transparency and legitimacy in all decisions on academic issues, and through regular discussions about the faculty's core activities, the council is a guarantor for academically responsible management of such issues, particularly with regard to research and education. Members of the Academic Council help secure quality assurance and stimulate new ideas and proposals.
