  • Project Management

    MAGIC Work Package 1 (WP1) is in charge of the management of the project, task that is led by RedCLARA, the coordinating institution, and in which all the partners are involved.

    WP1 Objectives:

    • To efficiently manage the project consortium by carrying out adequate planning, implementation and monitoring of the project tasks and activities as well as the timely delivery of reports.
    • To secure the adequate coordination among project partners and beneficiaries.
    • To appropriately manage the resources.
    • To monitor the results and implement corrective measures, if needed.

    Description of work

    To coordinate the work of the Consortium, there will be a “Steering Committee” composed of one representative of each Partner and coordinated by the Project Leader. This committee will be responsible for making high-level decisions and solving differences that may arise among the work packages, such as different points of view in the implementation calendar of standards or other topics.

    The Steering Committee will meet every 3 months in order to receive updates of activities, approve changes and supervise the overall execution of the project.

    There will also be a Regional Executive Committee composed of representatives of each of the world regions. This committee will meet once a month and will be responsible for the coordination of work at the regional level. It will report to the Steering Committee and will be coordinated by the Project Leader.

    The project will start with a Technical Kick-off Meeting that will include the WP leaders. This will allow for more detailed planning by each WP and the detailed planning of activities in order to ensure that the schedule is completely assumed by each team member.

    Each Work Package will be coordinated by the WP Leader who will also be responsible for the appropriate execution of the activities, quality control and the timely delivery of reports. Any change in planning that may imply delays to other packages will have to be approved by the Steering Committee. The WP teams will hold fortnightly meetings and use RedCLARA’s Portal to coordinate their activities and maintain documentation of the project.

    The Project Leader’s Office will be in charge of administrative procedures, the control of expenses and the appropriate documentation to be submitted to the European Commission.
