Organisation

As FuseNet’s full name dictates, our highest governing body is the General Assembly, which consists of one delegate for each of our member institutions. The General Assembly ultimately decides on the course of the association. To flesh out the long-term plan of action, the General Assembly has appointed a Board of Governors. While the Board of Governors decides on the long-term plans, the day-to-day functioning of the association is in the hands of the Executive Office that keeps the association running and executes plans of the board of governors.

Additionally, two advisory bodies are in place that advise the Board of Governors both solicitedly and unsolicitedly. On matters of academic importance, the Board of Governors is advised by the Academic Council, which is explicitly tasked with providing a forum of discussion on fusion education in Europe. To voice the students’ concerns and help the Board of Governors better adapt to the needs and wishes of students, there is the Student Council, comprised of fusion graduate and PhD students across Europe.
