Since 1994, COMETS is a think tank that examines general ethical issues raised by research. Through its public opinions and training activities, COMETS draws the attention of research and management personnel to the ethical and societal dimensions of all research.

COMETS is composed of a president and 12 members appointed by the CNRS Board of Directors. It represents all disciplines and respects gender parity.
