Mangement of the MESH Project

 
Management of the day-to-day work and setting the strategic and technical direction of the MESH project was undertaken through two groups comprising representatives from all Project Partners. In addition there was a Technical Group to discuss and review the technical activities of the project.

JNCC (UK) as the lead partner was responsible to INTERREG for the overall management of the MESH Project to ensure it delivered the key products. A legally binding partnership agreement known as the MESH Joint Convention was signed by all partners to cover the operation of the partnership. 
 
JNCC established a Project Team comprising a full-time Project Co-ordinator and a Project Administrator who were responsible for the effective running of the project and day to day co-ordination of partner activities. These staff provide the overall management for the project and act as the main link with the NWE INTERREG secretariat.
