Coordination and Management
Work Package 1 provides the structured framework for the management of the Sumforest project. The coordinator (BMLFUW) is responsible for this Work Package, but all the other 22 partners are involved in order to guarantee the success of this ERA-NET.
A permanent Project Secretary has been set up at the premises of Partner BMLFUW and is run by BFW. It ensures that the day to day management of the project runs smoothly and all participants comply with the agreements. Therefore, a consortium agreement has been established to lay down the internal management rules.
Via Work Package 1, all meetings of the Management and Steering Committee will be organized and accomplished. Additionally all workshops and conferences that Sumforest organizes are supported by the Project Secretary established in Work Package 1.
This Work Package also regulates the internal communication and the communication towards the European Commission. All reports, deliverables and communication will be supplied via the coordinator. An internal and interactive website is facilitating the communication within the project consortium and serves as the main channel for internal information exchange. Thereby, it also provides space for electronic discussions.
