CC-WaterS: the organisation structure.
Project Participants (plenum):
all people who are working in CC-WaterS.
Each partner has a legal representative (signatory) who is the official represetnative of the project and is allowed to sign all contracts of CC-WaterS. All legal representatives together form the Project Steering Committee.
A scientific advisor is recruited from each country. All Scientific Advisors form the Scientific Advisory Board which is responsible for monitoring and directing the thematic project work.
Internal Project Leader:
The internal project leader of each project partner is the main contact person for the partner and therefore the representative of each partner concerning daily work. He/she is part of the Core Working Group, leads staff and experts for the specific thematic work packages and is occupied with all administrative tasks of the partner (e.g. reporting).
Staff & Experts for Work Packages:
Staff and experts of each partner, who participate in a work package, together form the Transnational Thematic Working Group for this work package.
Concerning thematic work, the Lead Partner structure is the same as for all partners, but the Lead Partner is in addition the final responsible partner representing CC-WaterS to the programme level. His responsibilities are shared with all project partners in the Partnership Agreement.
The project coordinator is the internal project leader of the Lead Partner and at the same time the transnational internal leader of the whole project.
Project and Financial Manager:
The project and financial managers' tasks are to spport the project and all partners in their daily work for CC-WaterS, to ensure the compliance of the project with the programme requirements, monitor and direct administrational & financial flows and to document the project outputs.
Project Steering Committee:
Project Steering Committee consists of the legal representatives of all partners. The Project Steering Committee is responsible for monitoring and directing the project concerning administration and finances. Its tasks are taking the important decisions upon the project and approve all reports (progress and finanical reports).
Core Working Group:
Core Working Group consists of the Project Coordinator, the project and financial manager and the internal project leaders of each partner.
Scientific Advisory Board:
All scientific advisors from the different project countries are part of the Scientific Advisory Board which is montoring and directing the thematic project work on a transnational level.
Thematic Working Groups:
One transnational working group is constituted for each thematic work package (=TWG3, TWG4, TWG5, TWG6 and TWG7 for CC-WaterS). Staff and experts of project Partners, who participate in this work package, are part of the corresponding Transnational Working Group.
That's the way it looks for CC-WaterS!
All partners have allocated persons to project functions. CC-WaterS organisation structure serves for internal and external purposes: all partners are able to contact all other project participants and especially their working group members. Furthermore external experts can find the right contact person quite easily.
