The governance of CELPHEDIA is provided by :

  • a Coordinating Office composed of the coordinator and a project manager
  • a Board of Directors composed of all directors of partner centers
  • an Operational Commitee organized by workpackages around a set of common thematic areas shared by the partner centers

Coordinating office

CELPHEDIA Coordinating Office undertakes the coordination of the operational committee (pilots and members of the workpackages), in partnership with the Board of Directors. It makes the connection between the components of the infrastructure and coordinates the communication within the Operational Committee (horizontal communication) and to the various governance bodies (vertical communication).

Board of directors

The Board of Directors has final authority on management and coordination of the research infrastructure and is responsible for its scientific and strategic direction. That board includes all directors of CELPHEDIA partner centers, but also scientific managers.

Operational Committee

The Operational Committee is divided in working groups or workpackages (=WP), following 4 main topics:

  • Management & Communication
  • Genome modification
  • Zootechnics, ethics & animal welfare
  • Phenotyping & multi-species approaches

The working groups correspond to the objectives of CELPHEDIA nodes and gather all the scientific experts of the network in a given area.

Due to its unique combination of expertise and skills, CELPHEDIA enables to develop transverse inter-species approaches, at the level of both the technology and the study of human diseases.

On one hand, these WPs materialize this combination of skills through exchanges between the centers. On the other hand, they enable the harmonization of protocoles and processes, either scientific or administrative, to provide users with services specific to the network through CELPHEDIA gateway.
