EuroScience currently represents over 2 600 members from 40 European countries.
The General Assembly is the sovereign body of the association: it consists of all members with the right to vote. It approves the association’s accounts and sets strategic guidelines for the two following years. Honorary members serve in an advisory capacity.
The last General Assembly took place at ESOF2020 in Trieste, Italy.
The next General Assembly will be held during ESOF2022 in Leiden, The Netherlands.
The Governing Board supervises the association and has extended administrative authority and decision making powers. Every EuroScience member has the possibility to become a candidate for the Board election on the condition that he/she meets the following requirements:
- Be an eligible EuroScience member
- Member fees have been paid
- Provide a Curriculum Vitae
- Provide a cover letter that should explain why you are interested in becoming a Governing Board member of EuroScience and how your expertise will help the organisation to achieve its goals.
The Executive Committee of the Governing Board comprises the President, the 2 Vice-Presidents, the Secretary General and the Treasurer.
The Governing Board position is non-remunerated but EuroScience covers travel and accommodation expenses for physical meetings. All meetings and communications are in English.
