Scientific Board

The Scientific Advisory Board

The TwinLife project team is supported by a Scientific Advisory Board that is planned to meet regularly every two years. The Scientific Advisory Board consists of internationally renowned experts in the field of behavioral genetic research and representatives of the major panel studies with which we collaborate and coordinate our activities. This Scientific Advisory Board gives advice on strategic decisions concerning all general aims of the project, and helps us reach a decision on what will happen to the project and project data after the maximum of twelve years of funding through a DFG Langfristvorhaben has been reached.

This Scientific Advisory Board

  • represents SOEP, NEPS, and Pairfam as existing large scale longitudinal studies in Germany,
  • includes both sociological and psychological expertise,
  • involves outstanding experts from existing behavioral genetic research regarding methodological questions as well as a focus on the research questions guiding our study.
