Steering Committee

InterRidge has a Steering Committee comprising representatives of the member countries and of working group chairs that are scientists nominated for their expertise in a particular field. The Steering Committee meets at least once a year. The Steering Committee considers updates to its Science Plan, endorse InterRidge memberships, approves the budget, decides on membership fees, oversees the operation of the InterRidge Office, reviews bids for the InterRidge Office and nominates the Programs’ chair. It also evaluates working group progress, assess and admits/rejects working group proposals, and nominates the working group leaders. 

The InterRidge Steering Committee consists of members from the following nations: China, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Norway, Poland, and The United Kingdom.
