The laboratory is headed by a director, assisted by a deputy director, elected for four years from among the laboratory's teacher-researchers.
As far as possible, they carry out the decisions taken by the monthly Laboratory Council, or those taken by the annualGeneral StaffMeeting. They are assisted by the weekly Management Committee and by various committees that meet as required.
Half-yearly Green Days allow all staff to participate in strategic thinking in a convivial way.
In addition, the laboratory is advised every 3 to 4 years by its Scientific Committee, which is made up of external personalities chosen and recognised for their competence in the laboratory's scientific fields.
