!!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-three academic sections covering:
\\
*[History & Archaeology|Acad_Main/Sections/History_and_archaeology]; [Classics & Oriental Studies|Acad_Main/Sections/Classics_and_oriental_studies]; [Linguistic Studies|Acad_Main/Sections/Linguistic_studies]; [Literary & Theatrical Studies|Acad_Main/Sections/Literary_and_theatrical_studies]; [Musicology and Art History|Acad_Main/Sections/Musicology_and_art_history]; [Philosophy, Theology & Religious Studies|Acad_Main/Sections/Philosophy_theology_and_religious_studies]; [Film, Media and Visual Studies|Acad_Main/Sections/Film_media_and_visual_studies]

*[Economics, Business and Management Sciences|Acad_Main/Sections/Economics_Business_and_Management_Sciences]; [Governance, Institutions and Policies: Education, Health and Welfare|Acad_Main/Sections/Governance_Institutions_and_Policies_Education_Health_and_Welfare]; [Human Mobility, Governance, Environment and Space|Acad_Main/Sections/Human_Mobility_Governance_Environment_and_Space]; [Law|Acad_Main/Sections/Law]; [Social Change and Social Thought|Acad_Main/Sections/Social_Change_and_Social_Thought]; [The Human Mind and its Complexity|Acad_Main/Sections/The_Human_Mind_and_its_Complexity]

*[Mathematics|Acad_Main/Sections/Mathematics]; [Informatics|Acad_Main/Sections/Informatics]; [Physics and Engineering Sciences|Acad_Main/Sections/Physics_engineering_sciences]; [Chemical Sciences|Acad_Main/Sections/Chemical_sciences]; [Earth and Cosmic Sciences|Acad_Main/Sections/Earth_cosmic_sciences]

*[Biochemistry and Molecular Biology|Acad_Main/Sections/Biochemistry_molecular_biology]; [Cell and Development Biology|Acad_Main/Sections/Cell_and_developmental_biology]; [Physiology and Neuroscience|Acad_Main/Sections/Physiology_and_neuroscience]; [Organismic and Evolutionary Biology|Acad_Main/Sections/Organismic_evolutionary_biology]; and [Clinical and Veterinary Science|Acad_Main/Sections/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.  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. [Policy for the election of Class Chairs|Policy for the appointment of Class Chairs (2019).pdf].
\\ \\
Section committees operate under [rules of procedure|Section_Committees_Policy_2011.pdf] and terms of reference.
\\ \\
Each section has the responsibility for assessing 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:__ [Poul Holm|Member/Holm_Poul], __Deputy Class Chair:__ [Göran Bolin|Member/Bolin_Göran]

*__Class A2__ - Social and Related Sciences%%(margin-left:12px;) __Class Chair:__ [Björn Wittrock|Member/Wittrock_Björn], __Deputy Class Chair__: [Shalini Randeria|Member/Randeria_Shalini]

*__Class B__ - Exact Sciences%%(margin-left:105px;) __Class Chair:__ [Paolo Papale|Member/Papale_Paolo]

*__Class C__ - Life Sciences%%(margin-left:118px;) __Class Chair:__ [Éva Kondorosi|Member/Kondorosi_Éva]
\\
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.
