The executive management of City of Knowledge Foundation (FCDS) formulates and implements FCDS policies and, for that purpose, it coordinates the work of the various Foundation departments. Additionally, executive management represents FCDS before the members of the Local and International Network and presents proposals for academic programs, entrepreneurial organizations, NGOs and international organizations to the Board of Directors.
