In order to improve its operation and efficiency, the Foundation proceeded during 2017 to implement a new Operational Model including a new Organizational Structure.
According to the new Organizational Structure, the Board of Directors is the highest governing body of the Foundation and the general management is the responsibility of the Director General.
The activities of the Foundation are divided into five (5) Units:
the Strategic Planning Unit,
the Research and Innovation Projects Unit,
the Promotion and Advisory Services Unit,
the Administration and Finance Unit and
the Innovation Unit.
In order to strengthen horizontal cooperation and synergy between the Units as well as increase efficiency, the Foundations’ new organizational structure, combines the departmental organization with elements of “matrix” organization.
The Organizational chart of the Research and Innovation Foundation includes three levels. At the first level is the Board of Directors of the Foundation, at the second the General Directorate and the management of human resources office and at the third the five Units of the Foundation.
