Project management

The project team consists of the leadership group, support staff at NTNU (financial and operational), as well as all WP leaders and one representative of each partner if it does not have WP leadership. With exception of the support staff, this group also consitutes the Executive Board of the project, which meets regularly.

Prof Olsen is primarily responsible for ensuring that all project works are operating smoothly. He also leads and delegates responsibility for tracking and keeping things flowing smoothly during the project lifetime and works directly with the Operational and Scientific Managers.

She is responsible for general operational tasks of the project, and ensures that the schedule is followed and tracks the status of all tasks to assure the project deliverables will be ready on time.

The Scientific Manager (SM) is Assoc. Prof. Murat V. Ardelan from the Department of Chemistry at NTNU. He assists the PC in ensuring the completion of all the scientific tasks necessary to keep a project on track. His job consists of checking for scientific problems, monitoring changes in the project, and reporting scientific problems to the PC.
