Three scientific councils were established under the IDUB programme to serve as consultative and advisory bodies and supervise the implementation of the tasks set out in the programme. The tasks of scientific councils include in particular:
- monitoring scientific activities of research teams in emerging fields;
- drawing up a ranking list in competitions for research teams within emerging fields;
- drawing up a ranking list in competitions for research teams within emerging research fields and teams financed from the funds for sustainable development of the University;
- issuing opinions on motions by the head of a research team to include or exclude a University employee from the team.
