Research Advisory Council

The Research Advisory Council, which is made up of nationally and internationally renowned bioenergy experts, has advised the DBFZ on the direction of its scientific activities since its foundation in 2008. The advisory council's advice ensures that the research carried out with institutional funding is scientifically sound and highly relevant to the current and future use of bioenergy in the energy system. The term of the actual committee is the period 2020 - 2023.
