Management of the project resources to ensure that the project runs smoothly
as planned and that the resources are used optimally to reach the objectives.
This comprises the project coordination, the handling of all the financial and
administrative issues and review of the reports. One Steering Group, namely
steering committee, will be organized with participation of Finnish companies
in this project.
The steering committee has four tasks:
Approve the detailed project plan.
Oversee the current status of the work including budgets/accounts and progress
Organise and coordinate the activities in the work packages.
Approve the final deliverables and closing of EESCU project.
Decisions on the project will be made by the steering committee in consensus.
In case of disagreement, the project coordinator will make a decision after
due consideration of arguments. In case of insurmountable disagreement or
missing deliverables the funding agencies may be asked to intervene.
The steering committee will meet every 6 months in conjunction with the
collective work group meetings. The project manager/coordinator will take
minutes from the meetings in the steering committee and distribute to all
partners. Comments and recommendations from the steering committee will also
feed back into the work groups through the coordinators of the work packages
and the mutual participation of main partners in all work groups.

by each partner.
D8.16-D8.23: Progress reporting every 6 month including an overall status
report delivered to the secretariat every 12 months with the final report at
