Management Committee

The COPL's Management Committee consists of 7 members chosen to fairly reflect the various research themes as well as the institutions involved.

The Management Committee is the decision-making body for questions relative to the budget, strategic directions and more broadly, the sharing of resources.

The members of the Committee are elected by an assembly of members following a recommendation by the Director.
