Scientific Area Committee (SAC)
The Scientific Area Committees focus on scientific cooperation within the DRESDEN-concept research alliance. A SAC is composed of scientists from TU Dresden and non-university members. The Scientific Area Committees shall define and develop main research topics. The aim is to have cluster proposals for the DFG Excellence Initiative emerge from them. In addition, the SACs have the task of identifying and prioritising research topics.
Each Scientific Area Committee has a spokesperson and a representative or, as in the case of SAC 3, a board of spokespersons.
DRESDEN-concept comprises four Scientific Area Committees, which represent the research strengths at the Dresden science hub.
