Clear, efficient and well-structured project management is critical for the successful implementation of a project with several partners. The project management activities will be carried out by a project leader, a Coordination Board and a project secretariat. The objective of the project management work package is:

  1. to ensure the best performance of the consortium, and timely delivery and high quality of results and products,
  2. to monitor, facilitate and effectively manage the project’s technical, scientific and managerial work
  3. to communicate and provide accurate information to the project members, the Commission, the other EMODnet lots and the general public.


The project management activities will be performed by the project leader, supported by the Coordination Board. Project management is a continuous activity during the full project duration (36 months). Main activities include

  1. general project coordination and supervision,
  2. financial management,
  3. responsible for reporting towards the Commission,
  4. organise project meetings and
  5. communication towards the project partners and the Commission.
