Picture of the week: 50 years of ESRC Chief Executives and Chairs

The Council Chair and Council members share collective responsibility for the ESRC’s performance. The role of the ESRC Council is to decide on all issues of major importance, principally issues of corporate strategy, key strategic objectives and targets. Responsibility for delivering key strategy is delegated to the Chief Executive, who is also responsible for the implementation of our policies and decisions, and for the overall management of the ESRC Office.

Here are a few of the Chairs and Chief Executives.
