The governance of France Cohortes is based on :

  • A steering committee made up of representatives of the cohorts working with France Cohortes, serving as project managers. Informed about ongoing work, this committee articulates its vision regarding priority needs for infrastructure development, while also providing integration and guidance on identified challenges;
  • A Trustees' Committee, comprising representatives of the trustees, which offers strategic oversight. This committee validates the directives discussed by the Steering Committee and reports on ongoing resource allocation;
  • Thematic working groups with cohort experts, to provide detailed information, training and outline specific requirements for developed tools. They also maintain technical and scientific awareness, and exchange feedback on implemented services.
