EuroQol Organisation and Administration

  • Richard Brooks


This chapter focuses on the history of the administrative, organisational, and managerial aspects of the EuroQol Group. The transformation from a group of individuals operating with a loose cooperative set of arrangements for meeting on a more-or-less regular basis to a structured EuroQol Foundation and subsequent developments will be traced. After a brief description of early administrative arrangements, and a short commentary on the administrative matters raised at the first two plenary meetings in the early 1990s the chapter is constructed on more thematic lines.
