“Governance refers to the processes, structure and organizational elements that determine, within an organization or system of organizations, how power is exercised, how stakeholders have their say, how decisions are made, and how decision makers are held accountable.”
In spring 2012, NSF merged several governance-related Expressions of Interest into a single Governance Working Group, led by the Governance Steering Committee (see member list here), with connections to 60+ organizations and institutions. Six months of research on governance, and community engagement efforts, including several virtual plenary and breakout sessions, culminated in a Governance Roadmap, which outlined initial steps in establishing EarthCube governance.
The Governance Steering Committee then presented to the EarthCube community EarthCube Governance Framework: A Proposal to the Community, which identifies initial governance functions, guiding principles, and long-term governance recommendations, drawn from community feedback and other EarthCube groups’ draft roadmaps.
The Governance Working Group is conducting a community engagement program to vet this initial governance framework to ensure broad-based community input in the development of EarthCube.
