The Scientific Advisory Board is an independent body of experts and the most important instrument of scientific evaluation for each Max Planck Institute. Such evaluations are essential to ensure the high quality of scientific research and the success-oriented use of research funds at the Max Planck Institutes in the long term. The members of the Scientific Advisory Board are internationally renowned scientists from leading research institutions and universities worldwide who cover the institute's research spectrum and are mostly not members of the Max Planck Society. They are selected by the president of the Max Planck Society on the recommendation of the institute and appointed for a term of six years, with a partial replacement every three years.
The Advisory Board of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology evaluates the scientific performance of the institute every three years and, on this basis, advises the institute's management on questions of scientific orientation and development. The results of the evaluation are incorporated into the strategic discussion of the Max Planck Society.
