The ODATIS Ocean Cluster is structured around 3 components:
- the Management Team (ED),
- Data and Service Centres (CDS),
- Scientific Expertise Consortium (CES).
The ODATIS Ocean cluster is managed by a Steering Committee (CODIR) and advised by a Scientific Council (SC), whose decisions are implemented by an Executive Board (EB) which is steered by the Management Team (ED).
- The Steering Committee (CODIR), appointed by the organizations involved in the cluster, represents the supervisory bodies and partner organizations and validates the cluster's orientation decisions on the proposal of the Executive Board,
- The Scientific Council (SC), appointed by CODIR, proposes thematic orientations. It is composed of experts on data and products, representatives of scientific programs and users,
- The Executive Bureau (EB), appointed by CODIR and directed by the ED, instructs and proposes operational orientations. It is composed of the heads of the Data and Service Centres (CDS).

The Management Team (ED) is composed of :
- The Director, the Scientific Director (who is the President of the Scientific Council) and the Technical Director;
- A technical team composed of mission managers ("in situ" and "satellite") and a Project Group of the cluster (project manager, support engineer and editorial manager).
These missions are :
- Federate the CDS and CES to promote and animate their exchanges and interactions;
- Promote and implement new CDS or new activities within a CDS, when new needs are identified;
- Offer unified access to data and services provided by the CDS or by the ED team itself via an internet portal;
- Work towards the implementation of interoperability of ODATIS data and services with the other poles within IR DataTerra and with national, European and international data and services infrastructures;
- Coordinate the implementation and maintenance of the ODATIS data catalog;
- To ensure, within the framework of IR Data Terra's missions, the archiving and long-term security of ODATIS data, using CDS;
- Contribute to the capitalization and dissemination of the methodological developments developed by the different CES;
- Contribute to the technical support of the CDS and CES and more broadly of the scientific community concerning the use of the data;
- Promote transversal and even transdisciplinary actions between the CDS and the CES;
- Disseminate information about ODATIS activities to the scientific community and the public;
- To report on ODATIS activities to partner organizations and supervisory authorities.
The ED organizes in particular Technical Workshops instructing and proposing technical orientations (interoperability, services, ...).

The scientific expertise within the ODATIS Ocean cluster is integrated at several levels of organization: within the governance via its Scientific Council, with the associated reference experts gathered within the Enlarged Group of Technical and Scientific Correspondents (GETS) and finally, at the level of the Scientific Expertise Consortiums.
The Scientific Council (list of members opposite), recommends the main orientations and ensures consistency with national scientific policy and major international programs both on the nature of the subject matter and on the scientific quality of products.
Leading experts associated with the main families of data and products support the data centers in the data production, use and evolution of the dataset. Gathered within the Enlarged Group of Technical and Scientific Correspondents (GETS), they are in close interaction with the Executive Board.
Finally, within the framework of the Scientific Expertise Consortium, groups of scientists propose to realize and evaluate new products around a theme for which they organize a scientific animation, in order to promote and valorize innovative processing methods and products for space, airborne and/or in situ observation of the ocean and its interfaces (atmosphere, coastline and submarine bottom) with the other data poles (AERIS, FORM@TER, THEIA) of the IR Data Terra.
