Advisory Panel

Before 2010 when ASIAA was a Preparatory Office, the Advisory Panel served the purpose of overseeing the progress, providing direction to the Office, and helping formulate the future planning of the Institute. We have been meeting regularly with the Advisory Panel even after ASIAA becomes a full institute in June 2010. At the Advisory Panel meeting, we present our activities for the previous years, the current status of various on-going projects, and the future plans. The Panel Members will undertake in-depth review of research programs of institute so as to promote research advancement of Academia Sinica.
