01 – Coordination of the Joint Action

The Coordination Work Package (WP1) manages the day-to-day administrative, technical and content aspects of the Joint Action Chrodis+. Besides executing the daily management, this work package provides overall planning and follows up on actions to reach the project goals and successful delivery of project outputs.

Executive Board management

Organization of Executive Boards on monthly basis is one of the major tasks of this work package. The Executive Board is comprised of the Joint Action Chrodis+ management team, work package leaders and European Commission and Consumer, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) representatives. The Executive Board oversees the Joint Action past and future activities. Executive Board Members meet in person every six months and via teleconference on a monthly basis. These meetings support to keep an overview on the project current activities and future activities planning. The Coordination Work Package links the activities of all work packages, updates the overall work plan and monitors work progress in all of the work packages.

Governing Board management

The Coordination Work Package also coordinates the activities of the Governing board. The Governing Board is comprised of nominated representatives of health ministries of Member States. The GB is responsible for developing a sustainability plan based on keeping chronic diseases at the forefront of the political agenda for health after the end of the Joint Action. The Governing Board meets once a year.

Events and risks

This work package also participates on co-organization of major Joint Action events such as conferences, plenary assemblies and governing board meetings. Another aspect of this work package is to identify possible risks and take appropriate actions to minimize and mitigate them.
