Structure

General Assembly

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 General Assembly elects the 16 members of the Governing Board.

The last General Assembly took place at ESOF 2016 in Manchester. The next General Assembly will be held during ESOF 2018 in Toulouse.
