The MPI-CBG services and facilities offer centralized research support within the institute, ensuring state-of-the-art equipment and expertise. They are independent of any research groups, including directors, and are led by highly experienced and motivated service and facility leaders (SFLs). These services and facilities are also offered with recharging to the campus and to non-campus groups in order to maximize unused capacity and create cost efficiency for the institute.
The SFLs meet monthly to discuss matters of the institute. They report to either the speaker of the SFLs or directly to the Chief of Science Strategy (CSS).
