The UltraWire consortium structure was divided into several layers of management which are designed to interact with each other and where all have specific responsibilities and roles assigned.
Project Co-ordinator (PC) was the main interface between the consortium, the European Commission and other interested third parties. The PC was supported by the Technical Manager (TM) and Exploitation, Delivery and Dissemination Manager (EM) and they will have the overall responsibility for achieving the technical and business goals of the project. The PC role was given to Dr Krzysztof Koziol from University of Cambridge, who is one of the leading experts in carbon nanomaterials.
The University of Cambridge was covering all legal and financial administrative duties relevant to the project coordinating partner role. The TM role was given to Jan Jansen from Aurubis, who is an experienced senior engineer with in-depth knowledge of the copper industry. His role was to provide cohesion of all activities in different Work Packages (WPs) from the industrial manufacturing and technical perspective and coordinate work and manage communication with the WP Leaders (WPLs).
The EM role is to ensure developments and activities are focused on the needs of industry and to develop strategies for delivering findings quickly and efficiently for rapid exploitation therein and he would be assisting PC and TM in their project management and coordination tasks. This role was given to Dr Bojan Boskovic from Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology, who has extensive nanomaterial related technology transfer experience between industry and academia. The EM also manages dissemination activities, monitoring and encourage exploitation activities, both at project and partner level. The EM monitors IPR issues to ensure Europe’s and partner interests are adequately protected. He would be assisting PC with submission of relevant periodic reports and deliverables, organisation of the project review meetings and preparation of the meeting minutes.
