Work Package 8 - Scientific Coordination

 

Inherent in any large scale scientific undertaking is the need to strategize so that the same standards are followed by everyone in every location. In collaboration with the WP leaders, Work Package 8 will provide the overall scientific strategy and coordination of the project ensuring that the same quality principles are embedded in all work carried out. The degree of fulfilment of the project’s objectives will be continuously assessed and leaders of Work Package 8 will ensure that the project respects all relevant international and national regulations. They will also play close attention to any ethical problems that may arise.

Work Package 9 - Project Management

 

Project management in GRiP is deeply interconnected with Work Package 8 (Scientific Coordination). Together, they act as a central piece of the global management structure of the project.

Objectives that will be introduced in this Work Package are:

• To set-up a project management structure that ensures an efficient operational management including administrative, financial, and legal issues.

• To ensure that the project is appropriately managed according to the work plan, supporting the Scientific Coordination in organizing and supervising the work and in acting as liaison with the European Commission.

• To comprise resources, procedures and tools for ensuring that all results are delivered on time, with an adequate quality level and within cost, including risk management and quality control procedures on deliverables.

• To support the appropriate communication and work dynamics to help drive the whole Consortium as a team towards successful completion.

• To generate information about network success and value for resources allocated.
