A Steering Committee, the Ethics Subcommittee and a Scientific Advisory Board will be set up to ascertain the project outcomes and the scientific quality of it. Tasks, roles and responsibilities have been detailed in a consortium agreement. To ensure smooth communication within the consortium, project meetings will be organised twice a year to inform partners, plan further work and facilitate communication and networking. At the end of project late 2015 a conference/symposium will be organised in Brussels to present the results of the project to a broader group of stakeholder.
