Daily management of NERF is in the hands of the NERF Management Committee composed of the NERF group leaders. The Management Committee is responsible for the scientific, logistic, administrative, personnel and financial management of NERF, including the central NERF facilities. On a rotating basis, one of the group leaders will take on the role of the spokesperson (“director”). The director chairs the Management Committee and represents NERF within the three founders and at the Inter-Institutional Board meetings.
Since January 2015, Sebastian Haesler serves as NERF director.
