The Board of Directors (BDR) is the main decision-making body of CERMA. He defines the direction of the Center and makes the decisions he considers important for this purpose. It approves membership applications and decides on the use of Center subsidies. It implements the means and measures that it considers most conducive to the smooth running of its members’ research programs and the achievement of its objectives. It receives, studies and responds to requests, proposals and suggestions presented to it by its members. The important decisions of CERMA are taken collegially within the BDR and are validated during the Annual General Meeting.
