The scientific strategic steering committee heads the alliance. In order to represent the heterogeneous partners as completely as possible, 12 representatives of large, medium-sized and small companies, as well as universities and research institutes have been appointed.
Additionally, criteria such as addressing the areas of need and the cross-sectional tasks as well as the location of the organizations in the new or old federal states played a role for the parity distribution. The members of the scientific strategic steering committee were proposed and approved at the general assembly. Prof. Dr. Andreas Tünnermann has been appointed main representative and president.
