Day-to-day management

The Director is responsible for the day-to-day management. The Team Manager supports the Director in his mission and is his representative when absent. The Director and the Team Manager are supported by the RD&D Coordinator, the Operations & Safety manager and the Communication Coordinator for the different activities of EURIDICE. The Quality Manager ensures that the operation of the EIG is and remains in line with the quality standard ISO 9001:2015.

Management Board

Both members of EIG EURIDICE, SCK CEN and ONDRAF/NIRAS, jointly run the economic interest grouping via the Management Board. The director and the team manager of EURIDICE report to the Management Board and participate in the meetings in an advisory capacity. The members of the Management Board for the period of June 2019 to June 2021 are:

  • Marc Demarche, Chairman, Director General of ONDRAF/NIRAS
  • Philippe Lalieux, Long-term Waste Management Director of ONDRAF/NIRAS
  • Peter Baeten, Director General of SCK CEN
  • Hildegarde Vandenhove, Director of the Environment, Health and Safety Institute of SCK CEN


Consultative bodies

Three consultative bodies advise the Management Board and support the EIG in its activities:

  • the RD&D consultative platform
  • the Safety, Health, Environment and Security consultative committee
  • the Communication consultative committee



The EIG does not have its own staff.  In addition to the Director, who is appointed by ONDRAF/NIRAS, most team members belong to SCK CEN. The organisation note describes the tasks and roles of the personnel deployed with a view to an integrated and coordinated cooperation. Together they form the EURIDICE team consisting of approximately fifteen people.
