Our centre is governed by our Board of Directors. The board consists of six members and six alternates from a wide range of academic disciplines and institutions, which are appointed by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA), the Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions (UHR), and the Research Council of Norway (NFR).

The board members and alternates attend four board meetings annually. The Secretary General of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA) participates as an observer.

The board, following a thorough evaluation process, is responsible for selecting the CAS projects and Young CAS Fellows.
