Prorectorate and Commissions

Research and Young Scientific Academics Commission

The Senate forms Standing Commissions to prepare its resolutions and to advise the Rectorate, the University Council and the schools. The Senate Commission for Research and Young Scientists is the main body responsible for reviewing QM tasks in the field of research, in which both the research promotion measures implemented by the Rectorate and those of the faculties are to be evaluated and coordinated. It deals with all matters concerning the organization of research and the promotion of young scientists.
