The MIRROR project is broken down into work packages to structure work to be done during the runtime and to enable multiple teams to simultaneously work on different components in the project. It is divided into 12 Work Packages that contain a group of related tasks. A description of each package is displayed below.
WP1: Project Management & Coordination (LUH)
WP1 concerns all aspects of project management, coordination, quality assurance, and risk management. It ensures the effective planning, implementation, coordination and achievement of the project activities and success and provides project structure and support to assist decision making, internal and external communications, encourage greater accountability and control, minimise risk, identify and address and exploit project related opportunities. Furthermore, the WP coordinates the quality control for project output and support the consortium to achieve their project objectives.
The project management encompasses contractual issues, technical, administrative, finance, communication and knowledge management inside the project, and external relationships between the project and the EC. The Project’s coordinator will lead the work package but will be assisted by members of the MIRROR management team including the Research Manager, the Integration Manager, the Community Liaison Manager and the work package leaders. This WP has the following objectives:
- Ensure effective planning, implementation, coordination, and achievement of the project activities, including timely production of deliverables and successful completion of the tasks.
- Provide project structure and support to assist decision making, internal and external communications, encourage greater accountability and control, minimize risk, identify and address and exploit project-related opportunities.
- Coordinate quality control for project output and help the consortium achieve their project objectives.
The work package is broken down into tasks. These include:
T1.1 Planning, Scheduling and Risk Management [M1-M36] Leader: LUH, Participants: CERTH, EURIX, SAIL, all
Detailed project planning and scheduling, including tasks, responsibilities and timescales will be performed in collaboration with the WP Leaders. Planning activities also includes regular revisiting of the project, which have to be considered for the project planning. The process for risk management will be detailed and documented in the MIRROR project handbook. Furthermore, a data and knowledge management plan will be created in close collaboration with WP3.
T1.2 General Project Management Activities [M1-M36] Leader: LUH
Project communications channels and protocols will be established and internal and external communication strategies will be managed. In collaboration with the WP leaders the work plan will be monitored, and – if required – reviewed and adapted in line with monitoring feedback. Up-to-date financial project-wide records will be maintained.
T1.3 Quality Plan and Progress Monitoring [M1-M36] Leader: CERTH, Participants: LUH, WP Leaders
An internal quality management will be agreed upon and documented in the early phase of the project.
T1.4 Reporting [M2-M36] Leader: LUH, Participants: all
Reporting structures will be established; partner reports will be collected and consolidated.
LUH (project coordinator) will lead WP1 and carry out overall project management. CERTH as the Research Manager will supervise T1.3. All partners will be involved in planning and reporting tasks.
