WP1 will create and facilitate a sound working platform for the key actions of the project. This includes start up, contracting, coordination of activities and partners, and project management. The Centre for Rural Research will be the formal project manager for AGRISPACE.

Shared responsibility across institutions in the different WP’s will ensure strong integration of partners and obligations in the project. Further, a steering committee consisting of the projects partners will be established to ensure a common understanding of research across different disciplines, negotiating potential changes in the project and promoting interdisciplinarity. The steering committee will make decisions if disagreements cannot be solved within the researcher teams or by the WP leaders.

Work package leader: Hilde Bjørkhaug, CRR. Additional participants: Steering committee.
