Supervisory board

Supervisory Board with 12 members is the governing body providing strategic leadership, accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance, and compliance with ethical standards. Composition: 5 academic partners; ESRs elect 4 representatives on an annual rotating basis; the participation of 3 non-academic, business partners in the SB ensures the desirable balance between scientific and technical training. The chairperson will be elected on an annual rotating basis. External quality auditors attend the SB meetings as observers. View the Supervisory Board.

ESR Council

ESRs will establish and determine the composition and terms of reference of the ESR Council as a forum for feedback and development and to advise the elected representative on the SB. View the ESR Council.

External Evaluation, Advisory and Quality Assurance Council

External evaluation and quality assurance will be provided by two external quality auditors: Andy Lowe, Grounded Theory Institute in California and John E. Reilly, Higher Education Consultant. View the Quality Assurance Council.

Academic Council

The Academic Council is an advisory council to the Project Management Team on all matters related to training and research, having a specific task to ensure inter-disciplinary, inter-sectoral, inter-technology and international synergy, knowledge transferability and creation across all ESR projects and within the TBRP research projects. View the Academic Council.

Ethics and Data Management council

The ESRs will all use the FAIR principles to guide their data management from planning, to collection, processing, analysis, storage to curation, publishing, and dissemination. To help optimising the potential for future sharing and reuse of data and outputs, a Data Management Plan (DMP) will be a project deliverable in all the ESR projects. For writing the DMP, LNETN encourages all ESRs to use the Danish installation of DMPonline, which is a tool for writing DMPs. The tool is available to all employees at Danish research institutions and their collaborators. View the Ethics and Data Management Council.

Exploitation and Communication Officers

To ensure optimal impact, local LNETN ECOs will be appointed with the task of organising and monitoring the dissemination and exploitation activities/events, contacting relevant media, assessing the impact on the target audiences, involving the relevant target audiences via the identified communication channels and platforms, ensuring implementation of the internal project and EU visibility policies. View the Exploitation and Communication Officers.

Project Management Team

Project Management Team consists of Project Coordinator, Project Administrative Manager, Financial Controller, and Local Project Leaders. Project Management Team is responsible for the quality of the training programs and research projects, for the day-to-day operation and implementation of the project, including administrative and financial reporting internally and externally.
