Governance & Management
 

Centre Director, Professor Suzanne O’Reilly is supported by a Chief Operating Officer and a Development and Business Officer.  Professor O’Reilly provides scientific leadership and strategic direction for the Centre.  Node Directors administer the CU and UWA nodes and are responsible for providing leadership in their respective nodes, bringing together researchers to form a coherent team with a shared vision of the whole CoE’s aims and objectives.  The Geological Survey of Western Australia has a nominated representative.

Professor O’Reilly chairs an Executive Committee, which guides the Advisory Board, and Centre Director on the appropriateness of the research strategies, reports on progress in achieveing aims as well as structure and general operating principles, and identifies and protects the Centre IP.

The Advisory Board includes senior representatives from industry and other end users such as Geoscience Australia.  This model has proven highly productive during the lifetimes of the GEMOC Key Centre and CET.  The Board meets annually to provide advice on the research program and governance, and any other matters relevant to CCFS.

The Science Advisory Committee has a rotating membership and primarily evaluates the Centre’s research, in particular its research strategies, structure and outcomes.
