!!Academic Management

The scholarly interests of the Academia are managed through a __class__ and __section__ structure.
\\ \\
On election, all members are assigned to a section. At the present time there are twenty-one academic sections covering History & Archaeology; Classics & Oriental Studies; Linguistic Studies; Literary & Theatrical Studies; Musicology & History of Art & Architecture; Philosophy, Theology & Religious Studies; Behavioural Sciences; Social Sciences; Law; Economics, Business and Management Sciences; Mathematics; Informatics; Physics and Engineering Sciences; Chemical Sciences; Earth and Cosmic Sciences; Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Cell Biology; Physiology and Medicine; Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Clinical and Veterinary Science.
\\ \\
Each section has a committee of its members to provide a focus for interaction with members. The chairs of the section committees are ''de facto'' members of the Council of the Academia Europaea. 
\\ \\
Council appoints three representatives from its number to serve on the Board of Trustees. One member to act as liaison for Science Sections; the others to represent the Humanities and Independant members of Council respectively.
\\ \\
Section committees operate under [rules of procedure|Section_Committees_Policy_2011.pdf] and terms of reference.
\\ \\
Each section has the responsibility for identifying potential new members of the Academia and for developing activities of relevance to that domain. 
\\
!For the purposes of nomination and election of new members to  the Academy sections are grouped into one of four Classes. These are: 

*__Class A1__ - Humanities and Arts%%(margin-left:65px;) __Class Chair:__ [Prof. Svend Erik Larsen|User/Larsen_Svend_Erik], __Deputy Class Chair:__ [Professor Poul Holm|Member/Holm_Poul]

*__Class A2__ - Social and Related Sciences%%(margin-left:12px;) __Class Chair:__ [Prof. Björn Wittrock|Member/Wittrock_Björn]

*__Class B__ - Exact Sciences%%(margin-left:105px;) __Class Chair:__ [Prof. Don Dingwell|User/Dingwell_Donald]

*__Class C__ - Life Sciences%%(margin-left:118px;) __Class Chair:__ [Prof. Alexei Verkhratsky|User/Verkhratsky_Alexei], __Deputy Class Chair:__ [Professor Robert Zorec|Member/Zorec_Robert] 
\\
Each Class has a Chair to coordinate the assessment process and develop the membership structure and composition policy in consultation with the Council and on behalf of the Board of Trustees.
