Steering committee

The Steering Committee is made up of partner laboratory directors, and makes decisions on the new research projects to be financed based on internationally peer-reviewed proposals, on new educational initiatives in particular those related with summer schools, and on actions for the development of transfer activities (including services and platforms).

Scientific council

The scientific council advises the executive board on scientific orientations, on proposed new educational programs and on transfer strategy. It is composed of representatives of each partner research laboratory and external scientists.

Executive board

The Executive board reviews the LabEx status and plans for the future. It supervises the management team, approves the scientific program, the educational initiatives and transfer policy, the financial investments, and the human and financial resources for each Work Package.
