The IAR Cluster comprises three bodies:

  • Consular Chambers and Professional Organisations
  • Businesses
  • Training – Research – Transfers

The IAR Cluster is composed of:

  • a General Meeting including all the IAR Cluster members
  • a Board of Directors with 35 members, where all the bodies represented. The Board of Directors is elected for three years by the General Meeting.  One third of the Board is renewed each year.  It is in charge of implementing the decisions and policies set out by the General Meeting.
  • a Committee of 16 members, elected by the Board of Directors for its term of office. The Committee sets the IAR Cluster’s main strategic guidelines. Working with the Scientific Committee (internal and external experts providing advice on labelling), it approves the projects it judges to be relevant to and coherent with the IAR Cluster roadmap. These projects are then presented to the financing committee.
