The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change benefits from the extensive applied research experience of its six consortium members, which constitute the following General Meeting of Shareholders:

  • Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV)
  • Università del Salento
  • Centro Italiano di Ricerche Aerospaziali (CIRA S.c.p.a.)
  • Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia
  • Università di Sassari
  • Università della Tuscia
  • Politecnico di Milano

The general meeting of Shareholders appoints:

  • Board of Directors (Board), with ordinary and extraordinary management powers, which has a three-year term of office and is composed of 8 members;
  • Executive Committee, to which the Board delegates technical and financial matters

The Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) provides advice on CMCC’s research activities, strategic plan and organization, as well as support on specific matters raised by the Chairman of the Board. It is appointed by the Board and is made up of eight highly qualified experts selected among the international scientific and academic community. Members of the SAP are appointed by rotation every three years: four new members are appointed, four of the old members are confirmed and the four old members not confirmed are appointed as “Honorary Fellows”.

The Executive Director oversees the administration and implements the resolutions of the governing bodies.
