The Project Management Bodies are:
The IP COORDINATOR (IPC)
The IP Coordinator (IPC) is David Giaretta (CCLRC,). He is now Director at Giaretta Associates.
The IP STREAM DIRECTORS
The IP Stream Directors are a senior team initially named as Seamus Ross (University of Glasgow: Methodology), Luigi Fusco (ESA: Testbeds), Silvia Boi (MetaWare: Innovation), Carlo Meghini (CNR: Components level research), Ugo Di Giammatteo (ACS: Framework). The membership will be reviewed by the General Assembly annually.
The Stream Directors will have a supervisory brief over all the Work packages in his/her stream in order to ensure coherence and consistency between work packages and cross-fertilise ideas between streams, work packages and tasks.
The EXTERNAL REVIEW COMMITTEE (ERC)
The External Review Committee (ERC) advises the EPM on its scientific direction. It reviews the progress made on a yearly basis and gives advice on the scientific aspects of the IP (e.g. new academic or technological achievements CASPAR should consider, new important trends, new societal developments the project should take into account, etc.). The ERC is also invited to propose ideas on generating new business and exploiting project results further. The reports from the ERC will be made available to the European Commission.
The EXPLOITATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE (EAC)
The Exploitation Advisory Committee (EAC) shall be composed of high-profile business managers recruited from the Consortium partners. It is expected that about three experts should come from large corporations and SMEs. The EAC shall develop concrete proposals on how new business may be generated and how exploitation should be organised from the project results. Any GA member can propose EAC members. The EPM decides on the composition of the EAC.
The IPC will chair the committee.
