Besides our three scientific units, three formal bodies structure the center: the Director’s Office, the Board, and the Strategy Committee. The Director's Office is chaired by the ICE Director, and composed by the Deputy Director and the Manager of the Institute. The Assistant to the Director supports the functioning of this office. We also have several other committees aimed to coordinate different aspects of the institute.
