Project Management Board (PMB) is the primary management body (steering committee) during the funded period and ensures the decision-making, reporting and communication between partners. It is comprised of two experts per institution: the main leader representing the HEI and one implementation manager. This board has the support of one financial comptroller. A consortium agreement (CA) ensures the governance of the funded period, the organization/allocation of resources, conflict resolution, and other relations between the partners. Responsibilities of the PMB include risk management by monitoring timelines, activities, indicators, budgets, progress reports, quality assurance, plus working with the Academic Council, the Consultancy Board, and the project office to ensure efficient delivery of the proposal.
