Since January 1st, 2019, a new management has been implemented after 12 years under the direction of Serge Planes, Research Director at CNRS. This new management includes a new governance scheme relying on different bodies:
- A Unit Director and a Deputy Unit Director to cover the 3 major missions of Research, Academic Training and Research Services. The Unit Director is in direct contact with the representatives of the Supervisory Authorities.
- A General Assembly (GA). Given the configuration on 2 very distant sites, an adaptation was made to meet the regulatory need to perform 3 GAs per year. Every February, a short AG video-conference launches the year with the simultaneous participation of the two sites. In June, a one-day AG, duplicated in Moorea and Perpignan, enables people to take stock of the scientific progress of the CRIOBE program. Finally, around November, a half-day AG allows us to go through resources, balance sheets and budget requests. This last session is also duplicated on each site.
- A Board of Directors. It is the steering body of CRIOBE. It is made up of the main functions of the unit, which are i) research, ii) teaching, iii) sites and technical platforms, iv) tools (LabEx CORAIL, Observation Service, IRCP). The Board of Directors meets by video every month and on an ad hoc basis at the request of its members. A generic mailing-list allows exchanges between two sessions of the Board.
