The AnaEE France project is coordinated by Dr Jean Clobert, Director of the CNRS Experimental Ecology Station in Moulis (SEEM) and by Dr André Chanzy, Research Director of the EMMAH Unit at the INRA PACA Research Center in Avignon.
Governance bodies and their roles
The Executive Unit is made up of the Coordinators, Project Leaders and an administrative executive. It manages "day-to-day" project operation by implementing the advice and directives issued by the other governance bodies. It meets every 2 weeks.
The Bureau is made up of the members of the Executive Unit plus a Node Managers representative and a representative from AnaEE Europe. It organizes the Executive and Steering Committees and may be called upon when a rapid one-off decision is needed. It meets as required, at the request of one of its members.
The Executive Committee is made up of the members of the Bureau plus all Node Managers (2 per Node). It implements the operating methods decided by the Steering Committee. It meets twice a year.
The Steering Committee is made up of representatives from the supervisory bodies and members of the scientific community with links to the project. It decides on and validates the project's strategic directions. It meets once a year.
The International Scientific Advisory Board is made up of scientists from outside the project but with expertise in one of the fields covered by the project and/or in infrastructure management. It evaluates and expresses its opinion on the policies envisaged or enacted by the project, and offers advice on project development. It meets once every 2 years.
