Up to 5 selected scientists at the TU Darmstadt serve for approx. 3 years as Fellows of the Forum. The Fellows comprise the active core of the interdisciplinary research forum. They come from various disciplinary cultures and stand for an already existing interdisciplinary orientation toward research and teaching at the TU Darmstadt. The Fellows choose topics and bring momentum to interdisciplinary collaborations.

The Fellows ensure the continuity of the plenum, plan the Forum's yearly retreat and draft – above and beyond the plenum – a fixed portion of the programme. They are supported and assisted by the scientific associates at the FiF and the office staff.
