The Scientific Advisory Board (WECO) advises the NIAS director, the board and the director general of the KNAW on matters concerning the institute’s long-term strategic policy in relation to its core mission.
The Scientific Advisory Board may offer advice with or without being requested, and it forms an important forum for the institute. The board meets at least once a year or as often as the chair and two other members deem necessary.
Members of the Scientific Advisory Board are:
- Professor Johan Schot, Utrecht University, History of Global Comparative History (chair)
- Professor Marieke de Goede, University of Amsterdam, Political Sciences
- Prof Pablo Valdivia Martin, University of Groningen, Cultural Studies
- Dr. Bernike Pasveer, Universiteit Maastricht, Technology, Science & Society
