JP Nuclear Materials – Governance
The governance of the EERA JPNM consists in a cordinator that chairs a management board and a steering committee:
- The management board deals with the practical implementation of the instruments of coordination and ensures the functioning of the joint programme.
- The steering committee is the decisional body and oversees the work of the management board.
There are two types of members, full and associate. The full members pay higher fees (to EERA and to the JPNM) and are represented in the steering committee, therefore participate directly in the decision-making process. The associate members pay lower fees (to EERA and to the JPNM) and need to designate a full member as representative in the steering committee. The management board is also composed of personnel from the full members. For the rest, associate and full members have equivalent ways and possibilities to contribute to the EERA JPNM activities. The steering committee member that represents the associate member does not need to be from the same country as the associate.
Current fees (2018):
- EERA: full members, 3000 €; associate members, 1000 €
- JPNM: full members, 2000 €; associate members, 500 €
