T4EU presidency

T4EU aims to further develop its joint governance structure by implementing a rotating presidency, nominating a Secretary General

About the T4EU presidency

Based on the work-plan of the Transform4Europe alliance’s proposal for the 2nd round of financing from the European Universities program, the rotating presidency has been implemented:

Rotating presidency will function on a yearly basis, with a new partner taking on the presidency from November 1st until October 31st of the following year, each former president becoming vice-president in the next year.

T4EU aims to further develop its joint governance structure by implementing a rotating presidency, nominating a Secretary General as a critical figure for the T4EU Alliance, and creating a joint T4EU legal entity. The current Secretary General is Sven Idarand.

The Secretary General will support the rotating presidency and, through their involvement, guarantee the continuity of the strategic framework of the whole alliance. The Secretary General and the holder of the presidency will divide the representation duties of the T4EU alliance in its relations with institutions of the EU.

The role of the presidency is neutral and mediating; it should work to facilitate commitments and agreements between the partners and nurture discussions between different management structures of T4EU. The main goal of the presidency is to foster the best work and decision-making between all the partners.
