The following text is an excerpt from an appendix to Board meeting no 39 (November 2019), with an amendment from Board meeting no 41 (February 2020).
Each of the four host university SciLifeLab committees nominate researchers from their own university as SciLifeLab group leaders to the respective Scientific director. Nominations as SciLifeLab group leaders from non-host universities are sent to the co-director of SciLifeLab. Platform directors can nominate unit directors and related people in the platforms as SciLifeLab group leaders to the infrastructure director. Nominations are welcomed throughout the year. The management group subsequently decides on whether to approve the nominees as SciLifeLab group leaders. The fulfilment of the criteria listed above will be evaluated every second year and if status has changed the affiliation can be terminated. It is possible to re-apply one year after the termination if the criteria are full-filled.
