With office management and the departments of finance, PR & marketing, support for junior researchers, and gender equality, the Central Office is CECAD´s administrative hub, providing an infrastructure that supports its research scientists in their work. The different departments work closely together to implement the Cluster’s organizational and management tasks and contribute greatly to CECAD’s success.

While administrative tasks are the responsibility of the Central Office, high-level decisions such as investments, budget release, staffing, etc. are made by the Executive Board. The Executive Board is composed of the heads of the Research Areas and Research Platforms, the representative of the young scientists, the Scientific Coordinator and his deputies, as well as permanent guest members from the Central Office.
