Changes to BSR Management

Professor Milner’s secondment to the BSR as Director will formally end in early January 2021.

In order to allow him to prepare for his return to Manchester and to facilitate an orderly transition at the BSR, he has been granted a term’s study leave and therefore ceased acting as Director on 1 September. A new Interim Management and Supervisory Committee of Council now manages the BSR in both Rome and London. It comprises Mr Colin Blackmore, Mr Alan Gibbins, Professor Simon Keay and Professor Rosamond McKitterick.

Members of this Committee will be in Rome from September and throughout the autumn to assist in this process. An interim Director is planned for January 2021, and for a new Director to be appointed later in 2021.
