Coordination WP1

Objective

A well-coordinated Joint Action (SHARP) with functioning management, including timely reporting, budget control and support for successful implementation.

Outputs & activities

SHARP is a large and complex joint action involving 26 associated partners and 35 affiliated entities from 26 countries, as well as 10 collaborating stakeholders. The SHARP actions are organized into five core work packages (WP 5, 6, 7, 9, 10).

The coordinator ensures that the project work packages work together to gain the objectives of the Joint Action.

The Coordinator leads the project with the support of the steering committee, oversees the execution of the work packages and takes part in their execution, as appropriate. The coordinator facilitates the building of country ownership together with the work package leaders.

Tasks of the coordinator

  • Monitor that the action is implemented properly;
  • Act as the intermediary for all communications between the beneficiaries and the Agency, unless the Grant Agreement specifies otherwise;
  • Request and review any documents or information required by the Agency and verify their completeness and correctness before passing them on to the Agency;
  • Submit the deliverables and reports to the Agency;
  • Ensure that all payments are made to the other beneficiaries without unjustified delay;
  • Inform the Agency of the amounts paid to each beneficiary, when required.

The management structure of the JA consists of THL Coordination Team, Steering Committee, Advisory Board and Partnership Forum. In addition, each WP has its own leadership and internal meetings/teleconferences.
