The quality assurance work package includes measures to be adopted for an internal evaluation of the project activities, results, etc. The focal point of quality assurance and control within the project will be the deliverables. At the first partner meeting (kick-off meeting), the consortium will confirm the standards and quality indicators as defined in the earlier stage in the Consortium Agreement:

(a) All work package deliverables will be confirmed within the D 1.1 (Elaboration of the work plan);

(b) Work package leaders will be responsible for ensuring that the agreed deadlines for submitting the deliverables are met;

(c) All deliverables will be discussed and approved by the consortium at the partner meetings;

(d) All deliverables in English will be professionally proof-read and edited;

(e) Project communication (as defined in the description of the WP 1);

(f) Conflict resolution and the decision making process will define the procedure used to resolve problems at an earlier stage, determine proper handling of problems, etc.


To enable the monitoring of the work and the progress in accordance with the research timetable and agenda, each project partner will provide mid-term reports on the RTD and MNGT activities to the project coordinator. The mid-term reports will be submitted to the coordinator one month prior to the partner meetings in order to identify the status of the activities and the problems encountered during the completion of the work. For this purpose, a standard template (provided by the coordinator) will be used providing the specification of the achievements related to the project’s RTD objectives reached in the last year of the project, activities planned for the next year, and the MNGT resource usage per WP.
