Supervisory board

AN OVERARCHING COMMITTEE

The ESOF Supervisory Board is a partnership between EuroScience and five European foundations.

They have established the ESOF Supervisory Board to oversee the development of ESOF and select the host cities.

Among its responsibilities, the ESOF Supervisory Board is in charge of:

    • safeguarding ESOF’s mission as a platform for European science;
    • appointing the International Steering Committee for each ESOF conference, who, in turn, nominate the ESOF Programme Committees and the Media and Marketing Committee
    • acting as the selection board for the ESOF host cities on the basis of proposals
    • developing strategic guidelines

The ESOF Supervisory Board is composed of five members from the EuroScience Governing Board and one representative from each of the five European foundations.
