According to the resolution of the Ionian University's Senate dated March 2019, the responsibility for Museum’s operation is assigned to its Director, Stavros Vlizos, and to a Scientific Committee, which consists of the following members:

Museum Committee:

  1. Konstantinos Angelakos, Professor, Department of History, Head.
  2. Stavros Vlizos, Associate Professor, Department of Archives, Library Science and Museology, Director of Museum.
  3. Konstantinos Oikonomou, Professor, Department of Informatics, member.
  4. Elena Hamalidi, Assistant Professor, Department of Audio and Visual Arts, member.
  5. Christos Karydis, Assistant Professor, Department of Environment, member.

The organizational structure further includes the Senate and the Rectorate of the Ionian University. A key aspect of museum policy of this new organization has to do with the participatory approaches which are these days considered essential in transforming the museum into an institution that is actively involved in the life of the community, and one concerned with providing a platform and establish enduring links with the public. Also, improving access and encouraging the greatest possible involvement of the local community.

The above scheme should promote outwardness and inclusivity, integrating the Corfiot people in the new museum environment and towards making good use of its exhibits. In other words, it is a body that purports to create new experiences based on the human-centered/centric model/ideal of management and raising awareness of a cultural heritage.
