Management structure

IMPACT will be managed through three committees: (1) a governing committee called the Supervisory Board (SB); (2) a Research, Development and Exploitation Committee (RC); and (3) a Training, Outreach & Dissemination Committee (TC). Committees will meet in advance of networking events, to ensure that feedback is provided to ESRs during these events. An Independent Advisor and Reviewer (IAR) will be appointed (Professor John Dyke, University of Southampton) to assess the progress and success of the network. The roles of these committees and the participants and the interaction between each of these and the IAR are described in detail below. Two ESRs will be elected annually onto the SB, RC and TC by their peer group so that their views can be expressed and to take more ownership of the network. Meetings will consist of an open discussion when ESRs can be present, followed by a confidential session when ESRs may be asked to leave (e.g. when sensitive matters need to be dealt with).
