Figure: ARIES Governance structure
The Strategy Board is responsible for the overall running of the DTP, and for all aspects of policy and strategy development; under the advice of the Advisory Board. It is responsible for the assessment of project proposals; allocation of studentships; monitoring DTP and overall training progress against success criteria set by NERC and the Advisory Board, and reporting to NERC.
The Executive Team (highlighted in blue below), made up of the Directors and principle role holders on the Strategy Board, holds weekly briefings (in person plus Skype) with the ARIES Secretariat, employing a shared on-line rolling agenda. This allows for rapid decision-making on partner activities, delivery of training, funding, internship requests, and queries/appeals.
