Structure

EMBnet is coordinated by a four member Executive Board (EB) that oversees the activities of Project Committees (PCs) and Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

The Executive Board (EB), as the principal management body of EMBnet, is elected by the Full Board and empowered to carry out the decisions of the Constituency. The EB deals with funding and takes care of the day-to-day running of the organisation between AGMs.
