Role within eWHORM
In eWHORM, EURICE leads the “Dissemination and Sustainability” work package. Thus, EURICE will be involved in the synthesis of the results from the scientific work packages and will support innovation-related activities such as dissemination and exploitation of results to maximise the project impact. To the same end, EURICE will drive the outreach and communication activities of the project. Furthermore, EURICE is strongly involved in project management and will support the coordinator in all aspects of project management, including administrative, legal and financial matters, project monitoring, progress management and decision-making. Eurice will facilitate the project workflow in general, stimulate interaction between the different project management bodies, and, together with the coordinator, assume the role of a liaison between the project consortium and the EC.
