The Management Group will be chaired by the Centre Director and include the leaders of the 4 technical themes together with the Project Coordinator. The Centre Director will convene a meeting of the Management Group and it is anticipated that meetings will initially take place weekly and then monthly via telephone conference. There will also be more formal face-to-face meetings every 6 months
The Management Group will be the main forum for discussing the technical progress of each individual research project and encouraging cross fertilisation across the various themes. The Management Group will be responsible for allocating resources and making key decisions in regards the overall project. Decisions will be based on a majority vote with the Centre Director having the casting vote.
The Management group will also invite academics from Partner Institutions and industry collaborators to attend the meeting and discuss the technical progress of individual projects. Invited participants will be able to raise issues and advise the Theme Leaders but will not participate in any voting.
- Allocate resources
