Governance is ensured by the group of team leaders, management, and the network of cohorts involved in the project.

The France Cohortes network deals with strategic issues and decisions for cohorts and authorities (strategic governance), such as:

  • the network development strategy,
  • resource allocation,
  • data governance,
  • the opening of the network,
  • ethics,
  • valuation principles. 

A strategic orientation committee, which meets once a year, issues an opinion on the main scientific orientations

The France Cohortes Joint Service Unit (UMS 47) deals with questions concerning the Joint Service Unit service offering (content, how services are rolled out, organization of associated resources) and the key work and coordination processes to be established between the Joint Service Unit and the cohorts, or between cohorts. It develops and makes available a range of services for all or some of the cohorts, co-developed with them.

  • The management committee reports to a steering committee, which meets three times a year, bringing together the director of the UMS, the representatives of Cohorts (PI), Inserm departments such as the director of the IT Department, the management of the Institute of Public Health, that of the Institute of Technologies for Health, certain business departments, and representatives of regulatory authorities. 
  • A regulatory authority committee, which meets twice a year, is the consultative body for validating resource strategies and taking final decisions concerning the operation of the Joint Service Unit.
