The Board decides on strategy and adopts the research programme and budget. The Board does not bear responsibility for research results ‚ this remains with individual researchers, under the overall editorial oversight of Director Guntram Wolff. Board members do not receive compensation from Bruegel.
The Board, chaired by Jean-Claude Trichet, currently has 10 members, all with distinguished backgrounds in government, business, civil society, academia and media.
New elections and appointments to the Board are due in 2014.
