The Strategic Board has a function of strategic direction and supervision. It is composed of the Scientific Coordinators of CMCC, who have been in the past Heads of Division, but no longer have operational responsibilities. They can therefore contribute to the definition of scientific strategies and the identification of new subject areas and problems, contributing with their experience, creativity and international network of relations. The Strategic Board is appointed by the Board of Directors and identifies its coordinator from within. The Board may invite to its meetings other experts who can make a contribution to the discussion. One of the main tasks of the Strategic Board is to define on a three-year basis CMCC’s Strategic Projects.
