IGMM Executive Advisory Group

The IGMM Executive Advisory Group takes an overview of and advises the IGMM Executive Group on all science and operational management issues in the Institute. The Group considers on an annual basis a review of science and operational performance together with future plans. It also ensures the effective operation of the IGMM governance structure.

To ensure transparency and accountability, the IGMM Executive Advisory Group is chaired by someone outside of the Institute, usually the Head of School, and has a diverse membership taken from across the Institute and College.
