Research4Life Governance

Research4Life General Partners Meeting – Oxford 2017

The Research4Life governance is as simple and as efficiently structured as possible, with progress monitored and future developments agreed at the annual General Partners Meeting. This is the governing and authoritative body of Research4Life, and decisions on major policy issues are taken at these meetings. The Meeting designates temporary teams to address particular strategic and tactical issues.

The Executive Council representing the major contributing partners makes ongoing operational decisions between General Partners Meetings. Several Teams, which are assigned particular responsibilities by the Executive Council, convene as required and report back to the Council:  Communications and Marketing, Capacity Development,Usage Statistics, Group B Revenue and Finance, and Fundraising.
