The project coordinator is responsible for the day-to-day coordination of the project. He is the main interface between the Consortium and the European Union, and also between the Consortium and the End-User Panel. He consolidates the project planning, progress reports, milestone reports, cost statements, budgetary overviews, etc. using the inputs from the other participants, and coordinates the communication between the participants.
It is the responsibility of the scientific coordinator
to monitor and coordinate the scientific activities within the project,
and to work toward the emergence of a unifying framework for timing
related issues treated in the various work-packages.
Each partner controls its own budget for travelling to project meetings. Bilateral visits between partners can not be supported by the PCC, and have to be covered by the travel and accomodation funds of the partners involved.
The Unit FCM will periodically analyse the expenses of the Consortium
members, will give forecasts and advise them on their budgetary
and other resource questions.

The End-User Panel (EUP) of this project will generate regular feedback, contributing to the industrial focus of the project, and to its relevance for end-users. To enable this, each year a half-day programme will be organized for the members of the EUP The EUP will be set up during the first 6 months of the project. Potential members of the EUP will first be approached informally, a formal request to become EUP member can only be made after approval by the PCC.
The Ametist project views the end-user-panel as an important means for interaction
with the industry at large. The panel serves both as a dissemination channel
for the project results and as a provider of feed-back on the development of
the project. Panel members participate in discussions on future directions within
the project and are kept informed about the developments as well as the technological
perspective of the work. The panel consists of representatives of companies
that have expressed an interest in Ametist and have committed to participate
in the yearly panel meetings. In principle, this panel is an open forum and
it is intended to attract more participants in the course of the project. Currently,
eight companies and research labs participate in our panel:
