Project management and coordination

The main focus of WP6 will be to integrate the work of the other WPs and to secure simple information flow between the WPs and to and from FACCE-JPI and INTENSE. Lead coordinator of INTENSE (Dr. Arne Sæbø) will spend about 50% of his time on the coordination and Research in INTENSE. In addition, a secretary at NIBIO Særheim will help with practical tasks related to the coordination. A leader group will consist of two persons from each partner and with at least three stake holders participating in the project. The coordinator will be the contact point between FACCE-JPI and INTENSE. Important topics are leading the INTENSE project, managing, establish good communication lines between the project and FACCE-JPI, running dissemination, reporting and auditing in due time and according to FACCE-JPI rules. The central NIBIO economy department will be used to secure that expenditure is in accordance with the rules from FACCE-JPI and our national laws and rules.
