Management Structure

11 partners [5 SME associations, 3 Other enterprises and end-users (2 SMEs & 1 LARGE) and 3 RTD performers] from 6 different European countries will take part in the ECOBIOFOR project. To succeed in the management of such project a clear and well defined management structure is required.

The close collaboration among SME-AGs, OTHERs and RTD performers within the management structure as well as the decision making mechanism shall ensure that all relevant project decisions are taken under knowledge and agreement of the consortium, and especially of the SME-AGs and SMEs. Any relevant technical and economic decision comprising the project results will be taken by the Steering Committee, assisted by the other Committees.

The following management structure has been designed:
