Project Management

TUC and each partner will make all the administrative arrangements before any actual project activity and will act according to the project's agreed directions. They will have to reassure that the costs planned are eligible and that all the staff allocated follows the required standards defined by both InHeriT's objectives and plan of action as well as ERASMUS+'s standards. Before the Kick-off meeting, all project partners have prepared a presentation defining their interpretation of the proposal and were ready to propose possible adjustments as well as the way they are going to specifically operate according to the planned tasks's distribution. Especially regarding the project coordinator, namely the Technical University of Crete, all necessary administrative staff arrangements have been made together with arranging the financial monitoring and every day modus operandi with local fiscal and bank authorities. First contacts with local stakeholders have been arranged in order to inform them on the launch of the project and invite their future feedback and active engagement and support. All ethical and authorship issues have been clearly defined and acknowledged in advance, especially authorship and open sharing arrangements and legal definitions.

InHeriT addresses a change in stakeholders' thinking on their approach of cultural heritage. Project partners will work on the basis of an organizational model based upon the use of Appreciative Inquiry. The Kick-off meeting in Athens focused at agreeing terms of reference, project management and conduct as well as project content and dissemination. It has also decided the establishment of the Steering Committee, the governing body of the project consisting of a Representative of each partner. Following launch, the Steering Committee will hold regular (physical and skype) meetings covering strategic and operational issues. Each meeting will be used for: assessment of the closing output, programming of the following and overall evaluation of the whole.
