Board of Directors

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the NICE Foundation involves two types of directors: Network Coordinators and Steering Committee members. The Network Coordinators coordinate the alignment of different network activities. The Steering Committee members organise single activities. Together, all Directors make strategic decisions for the ongoing management of the network.

This setup marks a continuation of the network structure from the years 2009-2015, when NICE was organised through EU-projects. From 2015-2017, NICE was organised through the so-called NICE Sustainability Team, which acted as the foundation’s Preliminary Board of Directors.
