The Governing Board is composed of members from the 1+ Million Genomes (1+MG) signatory and observer countries. The Board is the final decision making body of the B1MG project and provides strategic guidance, with the support of the Scientific and Ethic Advisory Board and the National Mirror Groups.
The Board meets quarterly to be updated by the Coordination Office on the project progress. When feasible Board meeting are collocated with 1+MG signatories or 1+MG Working Group meetings.
The Board members can propose additional members (countries) at any time during the project. The Coordination Office will seek the approval of the Governing Board for any significant modifications to the project (e.g. change of WP plans, or reallocation of budget above €30k).
