Fiction Meets Science was conceived and designed by Susan M. Gaines, Norbert Schaffeld, Anton Kirchhofer, Uwe Schimank, and Peter Weingart, who also serve as co-directors. Members fall into four general categories: project members work on the FMS research projects; partners provide advice and resources, and participate in FMS events and joint publications; Novelists Network members are interested in FMS themes and may provide advice or be involved in FMS projects, events, and publications; and Scientists Network members participate in FMS activities and serve as consultants to FMS researchers and novelists.
