The scientific advisory board is made up of nine eminent scientists from various institutions of which 

  1. four in the university sector
  2. three in the national and state geological surveys,
  3. two from industry or other non-university research institutes.

They should all be active in a geoscientific or geoscientific-technical field, or with the necessary experience. Two scientists should be from abroad. One scientist should be from Leibniz University Hannover.
