Digital Election of the Steering Committee: BIH Platform/Tranlsation Hub Organoids and Cell Engineering

Nearing one year of successful Platform/Hub activities, the BIH invites all Platform/Hub members to participate in the first online election of the Platforms’/Hubs’ Steering Committees. The voting period is June 2 – 14, 2020.

The members of the steering committees contribute their respective expertise to represent the scientific communities in all matters concerning the implementation and development of innovative technologies, methods and research structures within the Platforms/Hubs.

The new steering committees will be comprised of seven members each. Additionally, it is aspired to access the vast expertise provided by all Platform/Hub members whenever necessary. Steering committee members are elected by majority vote of the Platform/Hub members for a two-year term. The steering committees should have an adequate seniority distribution and comprise representatives of all relevant Platform/Hub topics and stakeholders. As part of its mission to realize equal opportunity, the BIH particularly encourages the representation of women in BIH committees as we aim to reach a share of 40% women in committees.

All members of the respective Platforms/Hubs have received an invitation via e-mail for taking part in the online election. If you are a member of several Platforms/Hubs, please make sure that you cast your vote for all of them.

The nominees of the respective Platforms/Hubs are listed below. Please click on the names of the nominees to see the (audio) presentations in which they outline their ideas and plans for the future development of the Platforms/Hubs.
