IPSL is governed by a number of organisations and universities. It is called on to be the vector of information between the universities and to be the central point for exchanges on the projects of the universities. Its intention is to become the focus for the communities of universities and partners and to centralise the responses to the calls for tenders in the climate sciences in Île-de-France.
The Steering Trustees
A steering trustee is an organisation / establishment that contributes to the overall vision and strategy of IPSL and provides significant resources for IPSL's missions in the federation. The steering trustees meet two or three times a year with the IPSL management, and review the progress of IPSL's missions, and the human and financial resources required by the work plan.
Once a year, IPSL distributes an activity report for the year gone by and an action plan for the year ahead to its main trustees. The IPSL reviews the strategic climate issues at the national and international level, new programmes and proposals for international collaborations with its trustees. These trustees decide on shared resources for the federation and the laboratories for these missions, means which will have been jointly discussed and proposed by the IPSL and the laboratories.
IPSL will propose to the group of steering trustees a coordination of all activities, with the scientific activities or themes being allocated by supervisory authority to allow interesting agreements that benefit from the best expertise for the benefit of the scientific community.
The Partner Trustees
A partner trustee is an organisation / establishment that does not contribute resources to the missions of IPSL but makes a contribution in kind to the federation or to one of the laboratories (human or financial resources). The trustees of laboratories that are not the main trustees of IPSL, are partner trustees of IPSL.
