Together they support the Executive Director and the Board.

Executive Team

The Executive Team is a decision-making body for SEI. It provides overall direction and leadership on governance, strategy, and the work of the institute. The team also monitors and evaluates progress towards strategic objectives and key performance requirements defined in our long-term strategy and annual work plan.

Centre Directors

The Centre Directors are responsible for day-to-day management of SEI centres and offices.

Global Management Committee

The Global Management Committee is the principal SEI-wide advisory body that supports the Executive Director to plan, implement, control and monitor the development, management and activities of the institute. The committee supports and assists Centre Directors and other Directors with strategic and long-term development of each centre.

The Global Management Committee consists of the Executive Team and all Centre Directors.

Global Research Committee

The Global Research Committee (GRC) decides on the focus areas of our core funded research, creates space and opportunity for research innovation, and is responsible for internal quality processes for peer review and ethics.

The GRC ensures that we are focused in the right areas and that researchers across our centres have opportunities for synthesis, learning, exchange, and leadership.

Responsibilities include:

  • ensuring accountable, effective use of core funded research investments
  • collaborating across SEI centres to achieve our strategy goals
  • representing SEI in external forums
  • managing the SEI Science Forum and SEI Science Advisory Council, and
  • developing and implementing research-linked SEI policies.

The Global Research Committee also guides other SEI-wide functions such as identifying new opportunities for our work.
