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 :
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 :
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.
