The decision-making bodies of the IEE

The Board of the IEE

The Board of the IEE is made up of the President, Director, Heads of Faculties of the three partner faculties, some member of the academic staff, representatives of the scientific staff, a representative of staff directly attached to the IEE, a representative of the students of the Advanced Masters in the interdisciplinary analysis of European integration, academic coordinators from the programmes in executive education/lifelong learning and an administrator of the management as secretary of the Board.

The Board of the IEE's mission is to follow general affairs (external relations, interfaculty cooperation, coordination of activities etc.), teaching (teaching method coordination, opinion on promotions etc.), to define the internal rules and to set up permanent committees (teaching assessment) or temporary ones.

It also meets once per year in a larger format (with external guests) in the form of a strategic Board with personalities who have worked in European affairs and who support interdisciplinary teaching and research in European studies.


The Research Committee

The Research Committee is made up of the President, the Director, members of the academic and scientific staff of the ULB involved in research projects managed by the IEE, researchers (belonging both to the academic and scientific staff of the ULB) affiliated according to a specific procedure and the IEE’s logistics coordinator.

The Research Committee’s mission is to present to the Board of the IEE general scientific policy orientations to draw up an interdisciplinary research agenda, to encourage the emergence of new interdisciplinary projects and to coordinate the management of research in European studies at the ULB.

The Research Committee is convened at least twice per year and reports its activities to the Board of the IEE during the latter’s last session of the academic year.
