Management of the VISION project

The project management structure focuses coordination of resources and mechanisms to ensure efficient progress of all technical, administrative and financial matters and to achieve milestones and expected outcomes.
The overall goal of the project management is to provide a focused, narrow but effective framework to support the whole consortium in achieving the objectives. The VISION project is managed by a strategic and operational management structure.

The Steering Committee (SC)

is the highest decision body in the VISION consortium. The project management structure is focused on the SC, which is in charge of all high-level decisions regarding the project’s direction and responsible for evaluating the performance of the working packages. The SC is comprised of one senior representative from each participating partner and is chaired by the Project Coordinator.
