In both Australia and Germany, the College has a Steering Committee responsible for allocating PhD scholarships, and for admitting externally-funded PhD students as Associates. The Steering Committee is also responsible for the curriculum and management of the College, and its longer-term evolution.
The performance control of the College itself will be managed by an external Advisory Board, meeting once a year. The Advisory Board will consist of academic and non-academic figures who are completely removed from PhD supervision, but represent key stakeholders interested in the success of the College - funding agencies, state and federal ministries and scientific personae. The Advisory Board will be formed upon the establishment of the College, with representatives of funding bodies at its core.
