The Bosch Institute has a Board of Directors who are responsible for fiduciary matters, strategic leadership and ensuring the sustainability of the organisation.
A Scientific Advisory Committee provides advice to the Board and the Executive Director of the Institute. It provides independent critique and advice on:
- scientific program directions, planning and content
- research performance
- links to global developments and opportunities in research.
The Executive Leadership Group is chaired by the Executive Director, who also is a member of the Board of Directors of the Bosch Institute. The Executive Leadership Group consists of the leaders of each of the Research Themes (currently five) within the Bosch Institute, plus representatives elected by the participant scientists. The Chief Operating Officer also is a member of the Executive Leadership Group. This part of the organisation provides timely advice to the Board and Executive Director about:
- implementation of agreed operational policies, planning and leadership processes
- cultivating an innovative culture and climate
- research project monitoring and reporting
- implementation of agreed strategic plans
- budget management
- planning for growth
There also is a Science Council, which consists of one representative from each of the research laboratories within the Bosch Institute. The leaders of the Research Themes also are members of the Science Council and provide the important continuity of advice that is needed within a complex organisation. The Science Council provides advice to the Executive Leadership Group on:
- research processes
- developing innovative research opportunities
- training needs
- seminar program development
- improvements to research infrastructure
- capital and revenue budgets
- specification of future research support requirements.
The Science Council meets formally twice each year, or more often if there is a perceived need.
