Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees decides on the general research objectives and the important political and financial affairs of the foundation. It directs the Executive Board in its important political and financial affairs. The Board of Trustees also reviews the legality, appropriateness and efficiency of the management of the Executive Board.

The Board of Trustees reviews the financial statements and annual report submitted by the Executive Board. It oversees the actions of the Executive Board. The Board of Trustees is responsible for decisions regarding amendments to the statutes or any dissolution of the Foundation as well as the treatment of third-party claims against members of the Executive Board. The assertion of claims against members of the Executive Board is incumbent upon the Board of Trustees in so far as they represent the foundation in and out of court.
