HLF Governance

The High Level Forum is organised by the Grenoble Innovation Campus GIANT, led by Julie Galland, Director of the CEA Research & Technology division. The HLF is managed by its Chair, Philippe Watteau, Chief Innovation Officer of CEA Research & Technology division and its Deputy Chair Michel Ida, head of the Sciences & Technologies Societal Impacts group.

The Members of the Steering Committee (SCOM) are the representatives of selected Innovation Ecosystems of the HLF international community that have provided much-valued support in the past as part as of the Executive Committee or an Ecosystem’s delegation. The major objectives of the SCOM are to shape the future of the HLF Programme and activities, to help guarantee the quality of the HLF annual Summit and to enrich the HLF Network.
