Network Consortium (NC)

The NC will include at least one representative of each beneficiary (consortium partner). Each beneficiary can also appoint proxy representatives to fulfil the need to deal with specific consortium issues, e.g. finances. The NC will take strategic decisions concerning the overall direction of the ERA-NET SusAn and on issues with financial implications based on information provided by the Coordinator. NC decisions will be taken by simple majority with casting vote for the Coordinator, in the case of equality of votes.

Work Description

The main activities of ERA-NET SusAn are divided into two parts. 


Part A: Activities related to the co-funded call and the consortium management
