Management Structure

Three bodies are involved in the decision making process of the IIiA: the Director, the Executive Board and the Council.

  • The Director is the head of the Institute. He/she is elected by means of an open electoral process.
  • The Executive Board represents the Council and advises the Director on government issues. It is made up of the Director, the head of each research group, the Research Manager and the Academic Secretary.
  • The Council is the most important management body. It is composed of all the members of the Institute i.e. academic, technical and administrative staff.

The IIiA's management also includes a Research Manager, a Technology Transfer Manager, an Academic Secretary and administrative staff.

  • The Research Manager is in charge of the day to day management of the Institute.
  • The Technology Transfer Manager supports IIiA researchers in technology transfer and innovation activities.
  • The Academic Secretary is in charge of the minutes of the Council and Executive Board meetings. He/she also certifies the agreements reached by them.
  • The Administrative Staff provides members of the IIiA with administrative support:
