DS4H operates a Management Board, briding research and education programs through the joint representation of laboratory directors and education structures directors. This board is shared witth the Labex UCN@Sophia and the NIDS Academy management board to ensure coherent research and education orientations.

The Management Board is assisted by a Scientific and Education Council for defining scientific directions and corresponding educational programs, and an Innovation Council for managing the liaison with industrial partners. The Scientific and Education Council is composed of representatives from all scientific domains covered, master’s programs, university faculties, and doctoral schools. It both ensures a strong coherence, not only between research and education but also between the graduate school curriculum body and the operational education structures from all partners. This council deals with scientific coordination, the evolution of educational programs, and the use of novel pedagogy in student training. 

An Innovation Council will be set up to organize student training in conjunction with industry as well as continuous training for professional requalification. It will coordinate initiatives in professional requalification with the UCA Reference Centers and the UCA House of Modeling and Simulation.

The Management Board will also mandate an external Scientific and Pedagogy Advisory Board. This group will be composed of renowned scientific and education organization personalities.
