This council will serve both a formal and a social function within QuMat. It will, e.g., speak on behalf of the PhD students/postdocs to the QuMat executive board and talent (teaching) committee. It will also work with the QuMat project manager to organize team-building activities for the QuMat PhD students /postdocs.
