Structure & Governance

The International Board is a strategic body of the MATWIN program. Chaired by Josy Reiffers, president of MATWIN and Unicancer, it brings together academic opinion leaders in oncology from across Europe and heads of pharmaceutical companies that are MATWIN partners.

The national recovery organizations (e.g., Inserm Transfert, FIST, INCa) are permanent guest members of the International Board. They listen to the auditions but do not participate in the deliberations on projects. The quality of the International Board reflects the commitment of all partners, particularly industrialists. The International Board is unique in Europe in the environment of research and innovation. All of its members assemble once a year to meet the challenge of maturation in oncology. As part of the call for applications launched MATWIN in March-April of year n-1, the International Board then meets the following year in May.

The Steering Committee is also a strategic body of the program. This multidisciplinary committee brings together complementary skills and experiences reflect the continuum of research. Its roles are as follows:

Between 2009 and 2014 (fifth call for applications included):
