The main bodies of the MarTERA management structure consist in a Steering Committee (SC), a project Coordinator (CO) and an Executive Team (ET).
The Coordinator (CO)
The Coordinator of MarTERA is PtJ Project Management Juelich (JÜLICH) represented by Dr. Lars-Uve Schrader. The Coordinator's primary tasks are the representation of the consortium towards the EC, the MarTERA promotion and the controlling of the overall progress of MarTERA. Moreover, the Coordinator informs WATERBORNE, JPI Oceans and others about the MarTERA project status.
Call Office: The MarTERA Call Office serves as secretariat for the calls in the MarTERA framework.
Steering Committee (SC)
The Steering Committee (SC), composed of one representative per MarTERA partner, is the decision-making body during the grant agreement. It is chaired by a representative of the coordinating organisation JÜLICH.
Executive Team (ET)
The Executive Team (ET), chaired by the Coordinator, is composed of the work-package and task leaders. The role of the ET is to ensure the efficient and timely implementation of the entire work plan from the launch of the (co-funded) calls to the final report. The ET is in charge of the implementation of the proposed work plan and executes the decisions taken by the SC. It is not a decision-making but an advising body assisting the Coordinator in the overall management of the consortium.
International Evaluation Panel (IEP)
The IEP is composed of international experts evaluating the research proposals submitted in Step 2. These experts are appointed on the grounds of their acknowledged scientific excellence in the research areas addressed by the submitted proposals.
