INTERACT-EUROPE 100, Work Package 1 – Coordination
Leader: EUROPEAN CANCER ORGANISATION (ECO)
The primary objectives of the INTERACT-EUROPE100 project are designed to ensure the efficient and strategic management of the Consortium, driving the successful execution of project activities. These objectives encompass overseeing Consortium alignment, coordinating project progress, identifying risks, and ensuring sustainability, managing data ethically, and facilitating communication within the Consortium and with external stakeholders.
- Consortium Management: Oversee and lead the alignment of all Consortium activities across all Work Packages.
- Project Coordination: Monitor and coordinate the progress of INTERACT-EUROPE100 to complete project deliverables, milestones, and tasks.
- Risk Management: Identify potential risks, implement mitigation measures, and ensure the long-term sustainability of the project post-completion.
- Data Handling and Ethics: Define how data will be managed throughout and after the project lifecycle, ensuring ethical compliance.
- Communication Facilitation: Facilitate internal and external communication within the Consortium and with the funding authority.
In working towards these goals, our project has a clear approach with different critical steps. We're creating a detailed Strategic Delivery Plan to guide every phase of the project. We're also making sure that new partners can join us easily, setting up strong internal structures and engaging regularly. We are approaching this effort in a thorough and disciplined way.
As we make plans for the project to continue well into the future, we're preparing recommendations to ensure that our impact on cancer training in Europe lives up to our expectations. Let's take a closer look at the specific tasks and results that will shape the INTERACT-EUROPE100 project.
T.1.1 Strategic Delivery Plan
The coordinator, in collaboration with Work Package Leaders, will develop a Strategic Delivery Plan. This plan outlines methods to achieve project goals, monitor progress, and covers aspects such as aligning partners on training methodologies, defining technology-enhanced learning parameters, and establishing a quality assurance system. Regular online meetings will be held to update the plan and provide feedback on identified risks.
T.1.2 On-boarding Partners
The coordinator ensures efficient on-boarding of partners through virtual General Assembly meetings and additional support. This includes clarifying project goals, partner roles, and providing guidelines on EU project participation. The coordinator supports consultative partners in specific Work Packages, ensuring their early involvement and contribution to refining project tasks.
T.1.3 Project Management Structures
Establishing appropriate structures and resources for successful project management, including kick-off meetings, bi-monthly Steering Committee meetings, internal communication channels, shared workspaces, GDPR-compliant contact lists, and reporting structures.
T.1.4 Project Governance and Advisory Board Meetings
Implementation of a governance framework, involving the General Assembly, Steering Committee, and an Advisory Board. Regular online meetings ensure good governance, decision-making, and collaboration. The Advisory Board, composed of experts, meets three times during the project to review strategic development.
T.1.5 Development of a Sustainability and Exploitation Plan (SEP)
A plan is developed for the long-term sustainability of project outcomes, based on data gathered through surveys and evaluations. The SEP includes guidelines and best practices for end users, along with a policy recommendation guide for the uptake and implementation of the ISCTP by health systems.
T.1.6 Ethical Approval and Data Management Plan
Support Consortium partners in adhering to research ethics standards and obtaining approvals. Draft a data management plan ensuring compliance with EU data protection regulations.
