Governance for the Accelerator Operation of the XFEL

The governing framework of the XFEL accelerator complex is regulated in the Operation Agreement (OPA):
“ […] DESY acts upon the mandate of the European XFEL GmbH […] as independent economic and organizational representative for the technical operation of the accelerator […] ”

The OPA and its annex regulate the operation model:

The (formal) interaction of DESY and the XFEL company is covered by 3 boards.

The Governing Board coordinates all matters of strategic or otherwise superior significance, the Operation Board coordinates the technical and scientific operation of the accelerator, and the Administrative Board coordinates the administrative and financial aspects of implementing the Operation Agreement.
