HLF Governance

The High Level Forum is organised by the Grenoble Innovation Campus GIANT and is managed by its Chair, Dr Karen AMRAM, CEA Tech Head of International Foresight. The Grenoble Senior Level Group (SLG) also plays an important local part in providing a validating role to the Chair. Karen Amram leads the Joint Programme Offices (CEA-JPO and Grenoble-JPO) which provide a variety of operational support to set and run the activities of the HLF network. The Members of the Steering Committee (SCOM) are the representatives of selected Innovation Ecosystems of the HLF international community that have provided much-valued support in the past as part as of the Executive Committee or an Ecosystem’s delegation. The major objectives of the SCOM are to shape the future of the HLF Programme and activities, to help guarantee the quality of the HLF annual Summit and to enrich the HLF Network. In 2020, the 10 members of the SCOM actively participated in the first series of work of the HLF Connect, a new continuous activity between ecosystems of the HLF launched by Karen Amram to increase interaction within the HLF. As a result, the outcomes of a 3-month work were revealed and discussed during the first HLF Connect Briefing hosted online from Grenoble on the 1st Dec 2020.
