Supervisory Board

The ECF Board is the Foundation’s decision-making body and works closely with the management in overseeing how we work to achieve our goals. The Board decides on the Foundation’s finances and overall strategy, supervises its grants policy, and consults with the Advisory Council in defining ECF’s priorities.

The Board meets three times a year. It consists of a minimum of five and a maximum of twelve members, including a Treasurer, Chair and Deputy Chair. Both the Chair and the Deputy Chair act as the Foundation’s two Vice Presidents. The ECF President is an Extraordinary Member of the Board.

Members of the Board are broadly representative of the wider Europe and of the disciplines and fields of activity related to our goals.
