A Steering committee

Assisted by a project manager, the Steering Committee bears formal responsibility for the efficient running of the project funded by IdEx Bordeaux. It is composed by the Director General and the Deputy Directors. The committee is responsible for defining the scientific policy and determining the action plans arising from the institutional guidelines. It authorizes the commitment of resources for regular staff, operations and equipment, coordinates institutional representation and ensures scientific and budgetary monitoring.

A strategic committee

Exclusively composed of world renowned researchers from outside the site, the Strategic Council validates the major thematic orientations of the programme, validates the implementation of collaborative or structuring programmes and ensures the evaluation of actions for IDEx and the Steering Committee.

A scientific council

The general mission of the LAPHIA Scientific Council (SC) is to assist the Steering Committee in making scientific choices. It is advisory in nature and makes recommendations according to the agenda of the SC. The president of the scientific council leads the debate. Among its recurring missions, the SC deals with the analysis of the returns of the various Calls for Research and Valorisation Projects by proposing a classification of the best dossiers (each dossier having been appraised beforehand by 2 independent scientists). The SC may also submit to the Management any new idea or recommendation, based on the evolution of the research fields covered by LAPHIA.
