The governance of the COPL is simple and straightforward and ensures that the activities of the strategic cluster are carried out in accordance with its mission in terms of training, research and support for the optics-photonics sector. Its structure ensures sound financial and administrative management.
The COPL Management Committee is composed of 7 members representing the center’s different research areas and institutions. The Management Committee is the Centre’s primary decision-making body for all matters related to the budget, strategic directions and general resource sharing. The members of the Management Committee are elected by the Assembly of Members upon the recommendation of the director.
