Foundation Council

DESY’s supervisory committee

The major task of the Foundation Council, DESY’s supervisory committee, is to advise and monitor the Board of Directors’ management duties. The Foundation Council is authorised to issue directives to the Board of Directors in important research-related and financial matters. It approves the annual budget and multi-year financial plans, audits the Board of Directors’ annual financial statements, the annual management report and the Centre’s progress report and decides on approving the actions of the Board. Furthermore the Foundation Council appoints the members of the Board of Directors and confirms the members of the Scientific Council.
