Web Governance

A new federated structure is in place comprised of a Web governance board, a Web presence committee and Departmental Web Representatives​.

It ensures the alignment of CERN's web presence with the organisational strategy, makes recommendations, implements decisions and ensures a two way information flow between the central governance and the departments​.

Web Representatives

The main responsibilities of the departmental web contact points is to ensure two-way information flow between the web presence committee and the departments, to have an overview of the departmental websites and to advise web owners within their department of best practices.


  • Liaising with the web presence committee and the web owners within their department to ensure a centralised two-way information flow.
  • Being owners of mission-critical websites and therefore familiar with CERN’s web technologies and best practices.
  • Acting as a web “superuser” so that the web presence committee can discuss changes and seek feedback ahead of web community meetings and documentation improvements.
  • Maintaining an overview of the websites within their department.
  • Advising members of their department prior to creating a website.
  • Overseeing implementation of web presence recommendations.
  • Assigning ownership of websites when web owners leave the organisation.

Web representatives are the first point of contact for website owners. They ensure CERN moves in a coherent fashion.
