IMPRS student representatives

The elected student representatives are a central body for communication between the IMPRS board and the students. 

As such they are members of the IMPRS board.

They bring students'complaints and suggestions to the IMPRS coordinator and the board. In particular, they initiate the students reports during the 1st and 3rd-year retreats.
They (voluntarily) help in coordinating student polls, the retreats, or social events, by coordinating students interests and scheduling.

Electings are happening towards the end of each year. Each student generation elects their own representative (plus deputy). [more]

IMPRS board of representatives

All major decisions concerning  the IMPRS-HD program will be done by the IMPRS board. Examples are questions concerning funding, considerations of the IMPRS course program. Also questions about the inter-institional collaboration (HGSFP, Graduate Academy, etc) will involve the board. Another issue are critical personel decisions, such as the selection of the IMPRS fellowship candidates, or the IMPRS membership in case of non-standard membership applications. Overall, the board is responsible for the performance and the progress of the IMPRS program. [more]
