Project Management

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.

Project meetings

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).
