Overall design and oversight of Network activities will be conducted by the Network Steering Committee, which will consist of one member of each partner organisation.
The Steering Committee members act as institutional contact points. They ensure accountability and overall coherence of Network activities; guarantee appropriate flow of information and exchange of knowledge; supervise and control the quality of all products, in addition to established peer review mechanisms that will be in place for the project, and ensure compliance to gender and ethical criteria. They are responsible for the adherence to international, European and national norms, regulations and laws; and to synchronize and harmonise administrative and budgetary issues.
Gender balance will be a key priority in the appointment of the members of the Steering Committee.
