CEFi is organically structured into strategic scientific research groups, coordinated by full-time doctorate holding researchers, specialists in the thematic scope of each respective group.

The research groups integrate projects that compete to best attain the CEFi objectives and mission. They may be proposed individually or by groups of researchers, on the initiative of full-time or associate members of staff and are always scientifically supervised by full-time CEFi doctorate holding researchers.

The CEFi Scientific Coordinator may take the initiative of proposing the organisation and the implementation of research projects falling within CEFi’s strategic framework.
