The EURIPID collaboration has three main bodies: the Board of Participants (BoP), the Executive Committee and the project team.
Board of Participants (BoP)
The BoP consists of one representative of each participating country or organisation and the members of the Executive Committee, which are not part of the BoP. The BoP carries out strategic decisions. Each representative has a voting right and decisions are taken by simple majority. The chair of the BoP is elected by the participants for three years. The BoP has at least one annual meeting.
One representative of each founder (NEAK and GÖG), three elected members of the EURIPID collaboration and a representative of the European Commission are members of the Executive Committee. Members of the Executive Committee are also members of the BoP. The responsibilities of the Executive Committee focus on the operational level: the operationalisation of the BoP’s strategic decision, to take high-level operational decisions, to carry out operational work and to monitor developments in this area closely in order to report them at the annual BoP meeting.
The project team acts on behalf of the members and is responsible for project management and all activities related to smooth operating of the project. Experts of the founders, NEAK and GÖG, are responsible for carrying out the daily work (e.g. webpage and database maintenance).
