Governance & Organisation
The EurOPDX Consortium is a scientific network of non-for-profit research institutions organised by a Consortium Agreement, and currently funded by Membership Fees contributed by each member institution according to its level of membership. One of our activities is to leverage funding for the Consortium infrastructure, as well as for specific collaborative research projects.
The main governing body of the Consortium is the Board of Coordinators, composed of one representative of each Full Member (see below). The Steering Committee is voting whenever all EurOPDX members need to be consulted. The Scientific Steering Committee, composed of one representative from all different research teams, is consulted for all scientific aspects.
