Elastopole governance

An association under the 1901 law, Elastopôle is administered by various bodies.

The Elastopole cluster operates as an association under the law of 1901 and is administered by various bodies : An administrative council, an administrative council office, a scientific council, a projects committee, an executive office and a coordination committee.


The Elastopole administrative council, whose members are elected at the general meeting, is invested with the most extensive powers to act on behalf of the association, carry out any operations relating to its objects and authorise any decisions not explicitly requiring a decision in general meeting.


The Administrative Council defines the cluster’s strategy and orientation, approves projects, defines the rules governing actions and evaluates programmes and their results. Its decisions are implemented by the executive office.


The role of the Scientific Council is to :

  • identify lines of research and relevant projects, particularly those linked to key technologies,
  • give an opinion on the scientific aspect of research projects presented, after agreement from the consortium for the project concerned,
  • put forward collaborative research projects,
  • suggest communication programmes intended to publish its ideas and encourage the emergence of new projects.


The Projects Committee assesses projects, assisted by experts, if necessary, prepares and issues an opinion on the accreditation of projects, an opinion which is then subject to a decision by the administrative council’s office.


The Executive Office is responsible for four functions :

  • coordinating the projects committee and the "inter-cluster projects" cell
  • processing market watch data
  • coordinating the external relations committee
  • supporting the work done by the scientific council


The Cordination Committee brings together representatives from the state and local authorities, representatives from Elastopole and qualified persons and gives the cluster the opportunity to account for its work to its public funding bodies.
