Following Up on the Recommendations of the Visiting Committee

The Organisation

Like most scientific organisations, ESO periodically invites advice from an external expert panel that assesses the performance of the Organisation, and formulates a number of recommendations. The most recent ESO Visiting Committee travelled to all of the ESO sites in the last months of 2018 and delivered its report to Council in June 2019. The committee, whose composition and mandate had been approved by ESO Council, was constituted by a set of internationally renowned scientists who possess complementary areas of expertise covering all aspects of ESO’s function. I am extremely grateful to all committee members for their hard work and very careful preparation of their report. An extract of the main conclusions and recommendations is presented in the preceding article.
