The composition of the governing bodies illustrates the values defended by IPEMED of North-south parity and political independence

Established as a non-profit association under the French law of 1901, Ipemed acts independently from state authorities and is funded by major Mediterranean companies, local communities and individuals that share its values. Its governing bodies reflect this independence and strictly respect North-South parity.
