The HERA Network Board is the highest authority in the HERA governance structure. The HERA Joint Research Programme Board is the ultimate decision-making board of the consortium for joint research activities. It consists of only those HERA partners that are participating in the funding call.



The HERA Joint Research Programme Board is responsible for the governance of the funding call and for final funding decisions on the basis of the recommendations of the independent International Review Panel. It ensures quality control of the call text and selection process by overseeing

  • the composition of the Review Panel
  • the enforcement of procedures and guidelines during the Review Panel meetings
  • the enforcement of the conflict of interest guidelines
  • will send an observer to all meetings of the Review Panel

It also monitors the progress and knowledge transfer activities of the funded projects.

The HERA Network Board and the HERA JRP Board overlap in membership when a partner organisation participates both in the network and the JRP.

Below is a list of the HERA Network and Joint Research Programme Board members.

HERA Management Team

The HERA Management Team are responsible for carrying out all the HERA activities of core substance in practice. It consists of one senior staff member from each Partner organisation, who will normally be the person responsible for the implementation of the HERA Network at the Partner organisation.

The Management Team is chaired and managed by the Network Coordinator or the Handling Agency as required. It meets at least twice a year jointly with the Network Board and is the forum for the implementation and management of the HERA network, including decisions related to preparation, organisation, public relations, reporting and follow-up action. It also advises the HERA Joint Research Programme Board on the implementation activities and administrative issues of the HERA funding calls.

HERA National Contact Persons (NCPs)

The HERA NCPs are members of the Management Team and in some organisations also additional staff who act as the designated contact person when a call for research proposals is announced. Below is a list of all HERA National Contact Persons.
