Steering group KI - MSD

A joint steering group comprised of three representatives from KI and three representatives from MSD governs the KI-MSD partnership and advices which projects are to be included. The group meets quarterly and in between meetings ad hoc reviews project statements to evaluate and strengthen research proposals put forward for collaboration under the Partnership agreement.

The mission of the steering group is to support the vision of the Partnership – to develop and execute on projects that neither of the organizations would have done without a joint partnership.

In order to facilitate the work within the partnership, each organization has also appointed an Alliance Manager who is responsible for the partnership and is working in close collaboration with both the researchers and the steering group.

Please find the names and contact details of the Alliance Managers and the Steering Group Members below.
