07 December 2018: CEIPI’S governance and management team – the Administrative Board of CEIPI adopts a reform of its statutes for the 1st September 2019


Press release by the President of the Administrative Board of CEIPI, Benoît Battistelli

In a context of major development of CEIPI’s activities and its European and international influence, the CEIPI Administrative Board amended, at the meeting held on 7 December 2018, the statutes of the center in order to implement the reform of the governance of CEIPI decided at the meeting of 28 November 2017 which will be effective, subject to validation by academic authorities, by 1st September 2019.

This reform introduces a Management Board composed, at the beginning of 2019-2020 academic year, of three directors – the directors of CEIPI sections (French, International and Research Sections), one of them being the Director General of the Center acting as a « primus inter pares ». In this framework, the Director of the French Section, Mr. Yann BASIRE, was unanimously elected Director General of CEIPI, for a duration of five years.

The purpose of this reform is in particular to ensure a continuity in the implementation of the strategy of the CEIPI as driven by the Administrative Board, while guaranteeing a well-balanced representation and development on all fields of activities of the center’s three sections, and being entirely complementary. Henceforth, this new mode of governance will contribute appropriately to the needs of a European and International oriented center evolving in competitive environment, requiring a strong and proactive entrepreneurial initiative, and in total synergy.
