YIN is self-governed. The network is led by an extended managing board in terms of the YIN statute and the decisions made at the monthly YIN member assembly. The extended board consists of two representative speakers and the chairmen of the active YIN committees. All members of the extended board are elected in the member assembly to represent the interests of the network and its members at the KIT and beyond.
In daily business the extended board is supported by the YIN Office, which is disciplinary assigned to the Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS) and located at the Institute of Measuring and Control Engineering (Mess- und Regelungstechnik, MRT). Additionally the YIN cooperates closely with the KIT service departments Research Office and Staff Development.
