University and SME constituent groups finalised and audited

The objectives are in the field of streamlining the formation of research teams in specific areas as they emerge from other work packages in the EVI-GTI (European virtual institute for gas turbine instrumentation) program.

The research teams should have a clear and fast communication structure so they act as a fertile ground for the preparation of excellent research proposals. This should improve Europe’s position with respect to the US ultimately leading to better engines and reduced time to market.

This work addresses the process to be followed when forming core research teaming arrangements. These teams will be formed and dispersed for individual bids and its is therefore essential to form “pools” of interest that can be accessed quickly and easily and which will consist of parties able to act effectively whenever opportunities arise.

Essential elements are identified as:
- A database of contact information, based on persons, for all interested parties

- A communication protocol, a described way of information dissemination

- Establish a list of priority constituent groups, based on the outcome of

- Establish a group “champion” who triggers action whenever needed.

The communication protocol has been drafted and also the procedure for establishment of a group champion has been set up. Group champions have been assigned for the December 2003-March 2004 call.
