Galaxy Executive Board (GEB)

Keywords: Strategic emphasis, long term planning and direction

The GEB is a group of principal investigators from around the world, tasked with coordinating the direction of the Galaxy Project.

The Galaxy Executive Board was formed at the Galaxy Directions Summit in 2019, which gathered together ~20 PIs from around the world. Initially, all Executive members led large grants that have Galaxy as a core component.

Mission Statement

The Galaxy Executive Board is the top-level community governance structure, responsible for the overall direction and coordination of project activities, to ensure coherence, efficiency, integrity, growth, and long term sustainability.

Board responsibilities include providing authoritative project-wide, external representation; leadership in scientific, technical, governance and community development goals; supporting communication and global activity coordination for efficient use of resources and timely completion of milestones; and arbitration among collaborators, users and communities.
