The Intelligence College Europe operates on a three-tier organisation system:
- The Steering Committee, which comprises all-23 member countries, and constitutes the decision-making body,
- A Presidency, held by a member country for a year. The latter leads the College’s activities. It is assisted in doing so by a Troika, that comprises both previous and future presidencies,
- The Permanent Secretariat, based in Paris, and responsible for the implementation of the Steering Committee’s decisions.
