Governance

Axelera is managed by a Bureau made up of six representatives of the cluster’s founding members (ARKEMA, CNRS, ENGIE, IFP Energies nouvelles, SOLVAY, and SUEZ) and two representatives of small- to mid-sized member businesses (CONDAT, INEVO Technologies). The Bureau is backed by a Board of Directors which consists of the three member colleges (education, research, and industry) and a Scientific Committee.

 

the BUREAU 

The role of the Axelera Bureau is to manage the cluster’s projects and to determine which projects and approaches will be brought before the Board of Directors for approval.
