Administrative history

The AC/137(VKI) chronological series contains the records of the Science Committee Study Group on the Von Karman Institute. This study group was created by a Council decision in June 1965 (see C-R(65)30). It brought together a group of experts tasked with assessing the Von Karman Institute’s scientific work and making recommendations about its future. The Group met for the first time at the Institute on 5-7 August 1965. After the second meeting, a report concluding that it was necessary to maintain the Institute was submitted to the Science Committee (see AC/137-D/264). As the Study Group had achieved its mission, it was then disbanded.
