Project Management

The primary objective of WP6 is to ensure the legal, financial, and day-to-day activities necessary for the project.

As project coordinator, HMO, will liaise with the European Commission and address contractual and reporting requirements. EIBIR will be the contact point for consortium partners, coordinate consortium activities such as project meetings, consortium internal communication and take care of the day-to-day management of the project. WP6 also encompasses the coordination of project governance (e.g. management of boards and committees) and will ensure the quality and timeliness of project progress and results, address risk planning and management.
