Our governance

FFEM’s governance is based on three bodies which interact right from the definition of the fund’s strategy up to the operational implementation of projects.
  • An interministerial Steering Committee, chaired by the Ministry of the Economy

  • A Scientific and Technical Committee, which ensures the relevance and appropriateness of projects in terms of the strategic orientations approved by the member institutions of FFEM’s Steering Committee

  • And a Secretariat, which handles the management of the strategic cycle and the appraisal cycle, as well as the monitoring of projects.
