Governance

Behind the scenes at BIG

Executive Board

The executive board provides BIG’s overall leadership, meeting regularly throughout the  year to develop BIG’s scientific strategy, carry out decisions of the general assembly, and provide oversight for the association.

General Assembly

The General Assembly (GA) is the body of representatives from BIG member groups serving as the highest authority for the association.

It is the final decision-making body of BIG on matters such as finances and membership, and also makes decisions about proposals made by the Executive Board on issues of scientific and strategic importance.

BIG Headquarters

The staff at BIG HQ represents a talented group of physicians, scientists, project managers, and jurists, as well as financial, communications and fundraising specialists. Under the direction of the CEO, they work in teams to develop and conduct clinical studies together with BIG’s member groups, industry, and other partners, and raise funds for ambitious academic initiatives. 

They also manage all aspects of BIG as an international not-for-profit organisation under belgian law.
