The Pears Institute answers to a Management Group, chaired by Professor David Latchman, Master of Birkbeck, which is comprised of senior academic representatives from Birkbeck and representatives of Pears Foundation. The Management Group meets twice a year to ratify the direction and strategy of the Institute as developed by the Director, receive progress reports and approve the Institute’s accounts and annual report.
An Advisory Group, chaired by Professor David Feldman, Director of the Pears Institute, encompasses colleagues drawn from the Institute’s Associates and partner organisations, representing a range of disciplines and interests and reflecting the Institute’s broad and inclusive approach. The Advisory Group meets annually and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of new initiatives.
