Workpackage Description

The WP Project Management is led by the Coordinator (UNIMAN) supported by ART, an SME with longstanding, hands-on expertise in the management of EU Framework projects. Scientific coordination and management of the scientific activities and their progress is in the experienced hands of the Coordinator and the work package leads (Task 1). Acting as the right hand of the Coordinator and as a permanent help-desk for all participants, ART will support the Coordinator in taking on full responsibility for project management and controlling (Task 2), contractual management (Task 3), communication management (Task 4) and resources management (Task 5).
