The project is supervised by the Project Management Board, consisting
of Local Project Managers, as representatives of each of the Partners
in the Consortium. The board is chaired by the General Project Manager,
the Coordinator of the project.
To ensure progress and enable optimal communication between participants,
formal project meetings will be held every six months, beginning at the
official start of the project. Individual participants will host each
meeting in rotation. Preparation of the first meeting will start during
the negotiation period with the Commission and will be held right after
the signing of the Contract. It will be focused on confirming the contractual
obligations of all partners and streamlining and optimizing the technical
and managerial methodology of the project.
In order to obtain a standardized application of experimental and analytical
methodologies within the project and to allow all participants to benefit
from expertise previously build up by individual groups, half or one-day
workshops will be organized in relation to four of the six project meetings.
To improve the scientific content and to strengthen contact and collaboration
between project participants and public, each workshop will be organized
in collaboration between two or more participants.
The Workshops could be open to attendance by interested parties from
local and European meat industry, scientists and public authorities. The
last Workshop will be in conjunction with the final project meeting and
will be extended to include an overall presentation of the project results
to the public (industry, scientists and public authorities).
