Coordinator and Scientific Director

The European University Institute served as coordinator of the NEWGOV project. Its headquarters was located in the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, since September 2006 directed by Stefano Bartolini, successor to Helen Wallace. The director of the RSCAS also served as chairperson of the Steering Committee and of the General Assembly. In addition, the director represented NEWGOV on the Executive Board of the CONNEX Network of Excellence.

From January 2006 until completion of the project in August 2008, the overall Scientific Director of NEWGOV was Adrienne Héritier, who had taken over from the first Scientific Director, Martin Rhodes, of the EUI's Department of Political and Social Sciences. She was delegated by the co-ordinator to take responsibility for scientific issues and associated organisational and management tasks related to the Consortium as a whole. She worked closely with the Steering Committee, the Monitoring Group and the Director of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies to ensure the effective management of the project. The coordinator was also the single point of contact between the European Commission and the NEWGOV Consortium.

For the management of the project she was supported by the NEWGOV Project Manager, Ingo Linsenmann, and other departments of the EUI and the RSCAS, for example the Academic Service of the EUI, the administrative team of the RSCAS; the publications and web unit of the RSCAS; and the Conference Unit of the RSCAS that was relevant for organising Consortium workshops and seminars.
