WP1&8: Coordination and project management

Involved partners: UKS, SLU, ONIRIS, WU, IRTA, DSP, UREAD

At the strategic level, it is aimed at steering the project together with the project coordination committee (PCC) so it remains relevant against the changes that may occur in the area, be they scientific, technological, environmental, or political.

At the operational level, it is designed to ensure that the project will progress in conformity to the work plan in particular with regard to achievements of the scientific objectives, the milestones, the deliverables, the transfer of knowledge, as well as the planned resources, and is supported by the workpackage managers, being responsible for their WP.
External communication will be performed by the co-ordinator, establishing a close contact and
communication with relevant European Commission DGs, IFOAM, the European certifier group, and various stakeholder groups on different scales.
At the organisational level, internal communication will be ensured by regular meetings with the partners and video conferences with the PCC to achieve maximum efficiency of the infrastructural setup, with special attention paid to financial, logistic, information, and coordination issues and in terms of quality and conformity to EC rules and procedures.
Management activities are split up in WP1 and WP8 according to the type of activity.
