The Board of Directors (BD) is CERMA’s main decision-making body. It defines the Centre’s direction and takes the decisions it deems important to this end. It approves membership applications and decides on the use of the Centre’s subsidies. It implements the means and measures it deems most conducive to the smooth running of its members’ research programs and the achievement of its objectives. It receives, studies and acts on requests, proposals and suggestions submitted by its members. CERMA’s major decisions are taken collegially within the BD and validated at the Annual General Meeting.

CERMA is convinced that it can play an important role in promoting equity, diversity and inclusion. The Comité ÉDI is a joint committee with Université Laval’s Centre de recherche sur les matériaux renouvelables (CRMR). It aims to help research centers adopt the best possible practices in terms of equity, diversity and inclusion, in compliance with the orientation of the Fonds de recherche du Québec.
