The leadership at the UNH-IOL performs the strategic management by developing and executing policy, creating technical and marketing vision as well as serving as a conduit between academia and industry.

There are three components to leadership of the UNH-IOL: the Executive Team, the Management Team, and the recently established Executive Advisory Board. Each component collaborates in order to achieve the lab's strategic objectives while working within the framework of our Mission, Vision and Values.
