Our Governance Structure
GET is administered by the Executive Steering Committee with oversight from the Advisory Board which is headed by a chairman. GET is functionally structured into Working Groups which provide participants the opportunity to discuss matters and implement strategic plans captured within the Terms of Reference of the respective working groups. The Chair of the Executive Steering Committee is the Principal Investigator (PI), supported by the Regional Chairs and major funding partners. The PI operates in regular contact with the Chair of the Board of Advisors receiving guidance for major operational advice. The Executive Steering defines the executive direction of the Consortium through the Steering Committee which is comprised of additional members drawn from the major international partners and the chairs of the working groups. The products of the working groups are presented to the Steering Committee and the Consortium at large.
