ACTION 1. PROJECT MANAGEMENT

OBJECTIVES:

The main target and expected result of Action 1 is the proper, on time and within budget accomplishment of the objectives and actions of the project. Timely and high quality reporting to the Commission is the main indicator of success. Aim of project management is:

  • To ensure that the project is carried out according to plan, on schedule and within budget.
  • To ensure effective coordination and communication among project partners.
  • To ensure optimal communication with the European Commission on technical, administrative and financial progress of the project.

METHODS EMPLOYED:

The assumption of an effective and operational partnership is plausible, given that:

  • Project partners have experience in managing large projects/budgets, including EU-financed ones;
  • The project is “mature” since the members of the consortium met several times and cooperated effectively for the preparation of this proposal.

The correct development of the project will require managers to be completely involved in coordination meetings, and to present all the administrative, financial and technical reports correctly and on time.

EXPECTED RESULTS:

  • Proper management of the entire provided resources, financial, human and technical, in order to maximize the effect of the project.
