Key messages
  • To ensure the success of the project, an "excellent" overall management, organization and communication is inevitable. An essential component of a proper management is to oversee and coordinate the whole project work in close collaboration with the different work packages.
  • The tasks of the work package are dedicated to contribute to the project’s success by providing all necessary contractual agreements and legal recommendations, organizing the networking between all partners, and reporting the scientific progress and financial status.
  • One key for a long-term success of the project is the networking with associate partners and the linkage with other EU projects that work on biodiversity related issues, as well as with research activities and existing infrastructures to join forces and find synergies in common fields of work.
