Overall ObjectivesWP11 is devised to ensure lean but effective management of the project with the following principal management tasks:
• Productive collaboration and integration of all partners
• Progress monitoring
• Completion of EC requirements
Description of WorkTo achieve these objectives, the bulk of the management activities is shared between the project coordinator, UGent, and the Operational Manager, SCIPROM. A clear description of roles and tasks ensures seamless interaction between these partners. All other partners have a minor share in the project management.
WP11 oversees the legal, contractual, ethical, financial and administrative management and supports decision-making & conflict resolution. In order to ensure easy communication and data exchange within the consortium, SCIPROM provided an internal website and other online services for the consortium partners. All the WP managers together with UGent and SCIPROM overlook the quality management, internal reporting and meeting deadlines. As Members of the Board and/or to a lesser extent the General Assembly, all other partners are involved in monitoring and decision-making.
