Equally representing the sites of Munich, Münster and the Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network (rmn2), the role of the Steering Board is to – amongst other things – coordinate the needs of the individual research groups; examine membership applications; and present project and funding requests to the DFG on behalf of the CRC.
