The General Assembly is the highest single decision-making body of Science Europe. It consists of representatives of each of the Member Organisations at their top decision-making level (i.e. President, Chief Executive, Director General) and may have high-level observers from external bodies. The first General Assembly took place on 21 October 2011 in Berlin.
Member Organisations are Research Funding and Performing Organisations. Members are agreed by the General Assembly based on recommendations to the Governing Board by a Membership Committee.
The General Assembly is currently chaired by Science Europe’s President Professor Michael Matlosz.
