People & Organisation

The Executive Board, which consists of representatives from our research-based organisations, our corporate partners and other areas of industry, is responsible for the initiation and coordination of all activities of the Academy, as well as for organising the selection of the International Advisory Board and defining its function.

The role of the International Advsory Board is to review and support the activities of the Executive Board, suggesting future activities as well as to inform other members of activities and developments in the field of design and health. The international advisors have a critical function in indicating trends and views on the future direction of the field, contributing research findings of relevance and benefit to industry, and networking among member universities and industry.

The International Advisory Board members are also expected to provide relevant information on research and events from their own region that could benefit both the current activities and future development of the Academy
