The IAGOS Research Infrastructure was established in January 2014 as an International not for profit Association (IAGOS-AISBL) with its seat in Brussels.
The General Assembly (GA) is the highest decision making body. It is composed of one representative of each Member and is chaired by the President. The GA has full oversight over Strategy, Activities and Budget of the Association, elects the Members of the Executive Board (EB), including the Chief Executive, and approves the General Secretary upon proposition by the EB. Roles for meetings and decisions are regulated in the Statutes.
The Executive Board (EB) legally represents the Association in the day to day business. Members of the EB are:
Valerie Thouret (Chair); Andreas Zahn (Vice-Chair); Andreas Petzold (Treasurer); Martin Gallagher.
The Executive Secretary (ES) is Hannah Clark.
