The executive board is responsible for the formal representation of ECSA and its business conduct. It is elected at each ECSA General Assembly for a period of three years and instructs the ECSA headquarters. The current executive board was elected at the ECSA General Assembly in November 2020.
ECSA’s board of directors advises the executive board and sets the scientific guidelines for ECSA’s work. Each ECSA General Assembly appoints up to seven ECSA members to the board of directors for a period of three years. The board of directors meets at least once a year and makes decisions by a simple majority. The current board of directors was elected at the ECSA General Assembly in November 2020.
The advisory board guides ECSA on strategic and policy matters, and reviews annual reports and ECSA accounts. The members meet regularly and report to the general assembly. The advisory board consists of up to 12 people, who are not ECSA members. Advisory board members are elected for three years at ECSA general assemblies, and any ECSA member can nominate someone. Advisory board members can be academics, political actors or people interested in citizen science. Our current advisory board members represent research councils, regulatory organisations and government agencies, as well as members of the public.
