New committee for the scientific use of the FRM II
The new coordination committee for the scientific use of the neutron source has met for its constitutional meeting on June 6th. The members elected Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schmidt, board member of the Forschungszentrum Jülich, chairman.
The scientific use of the FRM II will be directed by Prof. Dr. Dieter Richter (FZ Jülich) and Prof. Dr. Winfried Petry (TU München). Prof. Petry was elected spokesman of the scientific directorate for the next 2 years. "We will raise great synergies with the common scientific use of the FRM II by the Helmholtz Centres and the TU München", says Prof. Petry.
The coordination commitee of the FRM II replaces the steering committee. It has 8 members, half of which represent the Technische Universität München and the Bavarian Ministry for Science, Research and Arts and the other half represents the three Helmholtz Centres in Berlin, Geesthacht and Jülich as well as the Federal Ministry for Research and Education. The new committee will define guidelines for the common scienitic use of the neutron source and control the use of the finances of the cooperation.
The TU München and the three Helmholtz Centres had agreed on a cooperation in December 2010, which is financed by the Federal Ministry for Research and Education for the next ten years with 300 million Euros.
The members of the coordination committee:
Chairman: Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schmidt, board member of the Forschungszentrum Jülich
Prof. Dr. Dr. hc mult. Wolfgang A. Herrmann, President of the TU München
Albert Berger, Chancellor of the TUM
Prof. Dr. Stephan Paul, Spokesman of the Cluster of Excellence "Universe" at the TUM
Dr. Ulrike Kirste, Ministerialrätin at the Bavarian Ministry for Science, Research and Arts
Dr. Stefan Stupp, Regierungsdirektor at the Federal Ministry for Research and Education
Dr. Ulrich Breuer, CEO at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin
