The WaterLANDS project is led by University College Dublin, Ireland and brings together 32 organisations from research, industry, government and non-profit sectors in 14 European countries.
This Steering Committee will consist of a single representative from all Work Package (WP) lead partners, the WaterLANDS Project Coordinator and the Deputy Coordinator. Each member is given one vote each in decision making for all project issues and will guide the dissemination of results that arise from the project. The Steering Committee will meet once every 6 months, alternating between teleconference and in-person meetings. The latter will be coordinated with the annual WaterLANDS meeting.
The work of the Steering Committee and outputs of the project will be assessed by an External Advisory Board, principally to ensure that the project is on track to meet its objectives. This external oversight group, totalling 10 members, will consist of international experts that represent the focus of Work Packages (WP)s 1-4. The External Advisory Board will meet once a year with additional attendance at consortium meetings. The Advisory Board consists of members who can offer input on various areas of the project including restoration, finance and policy.
