Research in the Biosphere Reserve is guided by two committees, the “Research Board” and the “Research Forum”. The independent “Research Board” advises the Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Transportation in the granting of research assignments. It examines research applications, evaluates them and classifies them according to priority. Furthermore, it supports the Ministry evaluating the research once it is completed.
The Board is made up of four scientists from different disciplines who were appointed to this office by the Ministry.

Researching scientists working the Biosphere Reserve are organized in the “Research Forum”. It offers a platform for the exchange of ideas and information on current research projects and/or the current state of research and is assigned to coordinate research activities.
