The Strategic Orientation Committee (COS) meets the leadership of the device, the CoDir and representatives of partners who invest in the device : organizations or ministries, academic partners, economic partners. It is being finalized.
Project managers : some actions of the device requires skills and regular monitoring : device governance, communication around the device, databases establishment and computer maintenance.
- Governance Project Manager : Corinne Pardo
- Responsible for IT Project and Database : Arnaud Jean-Charles
The OHM have themselves animation and governance structures, with a governing board, a steering committee and a strategic planning committee.
