The Scientific Committee at DESY (in German: Wissenschaftlicher Ausschuss – WA, english: SComm) is the representative of the scientific staff at DESY. The task of the SComm is to advise the DESY Board of Directors on issues of fundamental scientific importance. In accordance with the DESY statutes this extends in particular to

  • the scientific program,
  • expansion and extension projects of essential importance,
  • fundamental questions of the scientific structure of DESY,
  • questions of cooperations with universities, other research institutions and industry as well as international cooperation.

The Scientific Committee may provide the Scientific Council with suggestions on the composition of the Board of Directors and the appointment of leading scientists.

  • the senior scientists of DESY, unless they are members of the Directorate,
  • scientific staff, elected from each department for a two-year term,
