Board of Governors

The Board of Governors has a unique structure. Each member academy appoints two governors. These six governors then appoint two additional governors from the general public. The remaining four governors are proposed to the Board by the federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, but are formally appointed by the Board.
