Board of Directors

The MIMS Board of Directors has oversight over all aspects of MIMS. It is renewed once every three years through an election. It consists of a steering committee of 7 academic members who monitor the day-to-day operations of MIMS and decide about its scientific activities. They manage the budget of the Institute and all fund allocation. 

Mandates withing the board can be renewed only once. Members of the board must be mathematicians from the Southern Mediterranean rim. A member can be nominated or can self-apply.
