Commissions

Commissions: the IAR Cluster’s key pillars

The IAR Cluster’s operations are based on Commissions, each one corresponding to an application market. Each Commission is organised as a Committee (small group of members sometimes divided into Working Groups) coordinated by a President assisted by an IAR Cluster team member. The various components (Research/Teaching/Industry) have a place in these groups, whose objectives are to set the IAR Cluster overall roadmap, define a strategic vision, pinpoint innovative collaborative projects and lead their community via plenary debates (open to all members).
