Organisation of the KIS

The Leibniz Institute for Solar Physics (KIS) is a foundation under public law

of the state of Baden-Württemberg. The complete Articles of Association can be

found here.

The organs of the Leibniz Institute for Solar Physics (KIS) are the Foundation Council, the Scientific Advisory Council and the Board of Directors.

The Institute is divided into two scientific departments: "Solar & Stellar Astrophysics" and "Observatory & Instrumentation." A third administrative-technical department combines the cross-sectional groups of administration and technical service. Project groups reporting to the Executive Board are formed on demand.
