Scientific Advisory Council

Since March 2000, a Scientific Advisory Council (Wissenschaftlicher Beirat) composed of experts in the field of labour market research has been monitoring and examining the work of the IAB at least twice a year. As the name implies, the Advisory Council primarily has the function of offering advice. During its visits, overall concepts of academic research are discussed, together with individual methodological questions and strategies of scientific procedure. In addition to this, it constitutes a forum in which Research Departments can present the latest results of their research programmes along with their most important projects.

The manner in which the Scientific Advisory Council has been assembled vis-à-vis specialist fields mirrors the multidisciplinary approach that characterizes labour market and occupational research at IAB. After the most recent appointments, the Board now consists of 14 members, six of them women. The participation of international researchers has been strengthened: five Advisory Board Members belong to foreign universities.

Currently, the advisory board is chaired by Professor Martin Abraham:
