CIRTRANS is administered by a Board composed of a representative of each CIRTRANS Member. A president and a Bureau ensure its operation. Each research project is administered by a project manager who has a role of scientific, technical and financial coordinator. It is followed by a scientific committee, which also drives its objectives. On the other hand, each project benefits from a specific contract that defines the financial contributions, the expenses and the confidentiality aspects.
