SimulPast is a network of 11 Research Groups from 7 Institutional Members. The Project also counts with the participation of External Groups that have specific interests in some areas of our research and that are helping in the project development. SimulPast is managed by two committees: the Scientific Committee and the Executive Committee. These are in charge of the implementation and monitoring of the project strategy and the day to day management. The project has appointed independent External Reviewers regularly assessing the development of the research on the basis of the proposal and the annual reports. The SimulPast finances are managed by the IMF-CSIC, delegating the single groups' budget to each Institutional Member.
