In accordance with the decree of August 7th 2006, the board is set up by the President of the University of Bordeaux and has 26 members: 13 members representing institutions and research units, including 1 ITA, 5 PhD students elected by their peers and 8 members from outside the school chosen among French or foreign personalities who are competent in scientific, industrial or socio-economic domains. The 12 non-ITA members representing institutions come equally from three scientific fields (i.e., human sciences, political sciences, public health and pharmacoepidemiology).

Rules governing board meetings
The board meets once a month in plenary or restricted sessions to discuss the various aspects of school life: examination of doctoral applications, organisation of competitive exams, awarding of grants, preparation of the Annual Scientific Days, assignment of tutors, requests for HDR (Accreditation to Supervise Research) / ADT or exemptions. Every year, a meeting is devoted to the assessment of procedures (registrations and grant awards) and more "strategic" discussion about school policy.
