General Assembly of the EISCAT_3D project

It is time to continue our series on EISCAT_3D project internals. Today we are looking at the ultimate decision making body of the EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project.

According to the "Description of Work" document, the General Assembly "consists of one representative from each of the participating entities [...]."

"The General Assembly will have an ordinary meeting at least once per year, and additional meetings can be requested by the Executive Board or by General Assembly members. The representative from the Co-ordinator chairs all meetings of the General Assembly, unless decided otherwise for a particular meeting."

The members of the General Assembly are:
  • Esa Turunen (EISCAT Scientific Association; Co-ordinator)
  • Henrik Andersson (EISCAT Scientific Association; Co-ordinator)
  • Cesar La Hoz (University of Tromsø)
  • Jerker Delsing (Luleå Technical University)
  • Lars Eliasson (Swedish Institute for Space Physics)
  • Anita Aikio (University of Oulu)
  • Tomas Andersson (Vetenskapsrådet)
  • Leif Johansson (National Instruments)
  • Richard Harrison (Science and Technology Facilities Council, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory)
"The General Assembly is able to make decisions regarding the contents of the Work Packages, finances, intellectual property rights and the evolution of the consortium. The decisions of the General Assembly should be accepted by all members of the EISCAT_3D consortium. [...] The General Assembly shall be free to act on its own initiative to formulate proposals and take decisions. In addition, all proposals made by the Executive Board shall also be considered and decided upon by the General Assembly."
