On the organizational level, the governance and scientific leadership of the ACT project are structured in a manner that continuously brings together the different contributors of the project – researchers, partners, students – through 3 working groups and 16 scientific research projects.



Scientific Committee

The Scientific Committee coordinates the Project as a whole and meets monthly. It is composed of six researchers from research centres and universities that are Project partners.

The Scientific Committee also includes a student and partner coordinator, a partner representative and a student representative.

The Scientific Committee will ensure that each sub-project begins under good conditions, on both the theoretical and methodological levels, and is based on solid, realistic collaboration with partners.

Assembly of Partners and Researchers

The Assembly of Partners and Researchers ensures the constant presence and involvement of the researchers and partners in the Project. It meets once a year.

Each year, at the annual colloquium, the partners’ representatives designate a representative to sit on the Scientific Committee.

The role of the Assembly of Partners and Researchers is to accompany the Scientific Committee in its relationships with the justice stakeholders and the industry, as well as to develop a true culture of collaboration between the world of practice and academia.


Student Assembly

The Project provides for the establishment of a Student Assembly formed of all the students working on the Project. Each year, that assembly will hold a general meeting, and designate a representative to sit on the Scientific Committee.

One of the goals of the ACT Project is to train the next generation of researchers.

The assemblies will be opportunities for students and members of the Scientific Committee to meet and exchange ideas, and also for students to meet grant recipients and research assistants.
