In order to assure the scientific excellence of COPE’s research, the consortium will establish a scientific advisory committee which will aid in implementing work packages, advise the partners as well as the consortium and participate in the first progress meeting, the midterm workshop and the final conference. Meetings of the advisory committee will be chaired by the scientific coordinator, Martin Heidenreich. Additionally, all committee members may advise the project on scientific and policy matters on their own initiative and they may attend biannual consortium meetings if their advice is considered necessary or helpful by the project coordinator. CETRO will ensure close collaboration with the scientific advisory committee and will involve its members in the scientific debates within COPE.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 290488.
