WP1: Project Management

The Management Committee is chaired by the leader of WP1, Dave Roberts, with one representative of each of the remaining Work Packages (WP2-8) plus the Project Co-ordinator (Vince Smith, NHM) plus the project administrator (Gemma Maldar, NHM) and will make decisions on the Network Activity and Joint Research Activity Work Packages (WP1-8).

 

 

A Work Package Leader is an individual appointed to represent those parties with responsibilities within that Work Package.  Work Package leaders were identified during the project preparation and can be changed by agreement within the workpackage and with the agreement of the Management Committee.

Milestone

Scratchpads module for data recording (Citizen Science ) - Alpha version

The delivery of this Milestone was postponed from the first semester of the third year of the project because it needs more time for collaboration with WP2. Migration from Drupal6 to Scratchpads2 requires additional effort both from WP8 and WP2 to deliver the Alpha version of the data recording module.

Alpha version is almost there. Needs a little work from NHM team. However, it is postponed in order to integrate the apps for the mobile phones.
