CITIDEP is a private, non-profit scientific and technological organization with headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal, but open to researchers from any country in the world, through national chapters and multi-national research clusters.

CITIDEP's organization units can be viewed in the diagram on the left.

CITIDEP has currently about 90 affiliates, in 10 countries, with 3 organized chapters (Portugal, USA and Mexico) and other soon to be (France). All Chapters share common objectives and principles and by-laws (Constitution, Chapters Regulation), but are otherwise autonomous.
