BRC’s daily activities are managed by the Manager, who ensures that the business complies with the program description, the Energy Agency’s and the Program Council’s intentions and that the decisions of LiU’s Vice Chancellor are followed. The manager is responsible for reporting to the Programme Council and the Energy Agency. A Management Group meets regularly and assists the Manager and is responsible for the coordination of research and planning of joint activities.

A Program Committee with representation from LiU (including the chairman), participating parties and the Energy Agency is appointed by the Vice Chancellor of Linköping University.
