The network management is designed to ensure a coherent scientific, administrative and financial coordination of DELOS, while providing the participants with the support and tools required for the achievement of the network’s objectives. In particular, the management will:

  • Support the integration of both research teams and research activities,
  • Ensure interaction among the different DELOS workpackages and activities,
  • Assess the quality of work achieved and take appropriate corresponding measures if needed,
  • Supervise and review the completion of the milestones and deliverables,
  • Manage institutional exchanges with the European Commission representatives,
  • Guarantee an efficient communication environment for the management of the network,
    Support a reliable communication flow among activities and participants,
