Steering Committee
The ultimate project authority, with collective responsibility for the project as a whole and for long-term strategic decisions within the project, is the Steering Committee. The Steering Committee (SC) is chaired by Prof. Tsaoussidis and consists of 5 members; Prof. Mpekakos, Prof. Katos, Prof. Eufraimidis and Prof. Karakos. All of the members have long experience in managing national and European projects and expertise on the research objectives of the project. In this context, they can constantly follow the evolution of the project and set guidelines on the research directions of the group.

The Steering Committee's main goals are:
  • to confirm that the overall resources used are consistent with the work performed,
  • to ensure that the progress of the work adheres to the contract,
  • to ensure that the agreements for contracts conform to the obligations of the contract with the EC and maintain copies of the agreements for inspection by the EC,
  • to supervise the progress of all Work packages,
  • to solve any technical conflicts between tasks,
  • to make all decisions related to technical matters,
  • to co-ordinate the internal review of EC deliverables,
  • to establish the right basis for the successful implementation of results,
  • to design a quality control discipline.
All five members of the Steering Committee have an equal status, regarding voting rights. The Steering Committee will meet formally at least every 6 months, but will take the opportunity of being together at all of the events, to discuss any matter than cannot be solved via phone or e-mail.
