The NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board oversees the activities of the NIAS-Lorentz Program and advises NIAS and the Lorentz Center on new ways to bridge the divide between the humanities and/or social sciences and the natural and/or technological sciences. Members also act as ambassadors and help promote the goals of the NIAS-Lorentz Program whenever they have the opportunity.
The NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board evaluates applications for NIAS-Lorentz Workshops at the Lorentz Center that bridge the divide between the humanities and/or social sciences and the natural and/or technological sciences as well as applications for SSH Workshops that are not necessarily interdisciplinary and do not require a natural sciences or technological sciences component. The board also advises on the development of the SSH workshop program.
NIAS-Lorentz Fellowship Boards
The NIAS-Lorentz DLF board evaluates the DLF nominations and the NIAS-Lorentz NLTG board evaluates the NLTG applications. Both NIAS-Lorentz Fellowship Boards are formed once a year at the annual NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board meeting (usually in the autumn). Each board is made up of five members from the NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board and three members selected from the other Lorentz Center Scientific Advisory Boards. Membership is normally for one or two years. If further specific expertise is required, external referees may be asked to take part in the evaluations.
