Organisational structure

The organisational structure of PLATINA involves the following parties:

Steering Committee (SCOM): responsible for the strategic guidance of the project’s technical actions and recommendations. It consists of high-level representatives of Member States, third countries, river commissions, the inland navigation industry as well as of the European Commission. Their acceptance of PLATINA’s results will be vital to the success of the NAIADES action programme. The Steering Committee will usually meet every six months to review the roadmap reports proposed by the Management Committee.

Executive Board (ExBoard): made up of representatives of the European Commission and the Work Package leaders. It is in charge of strategic planning, resolving contractual and financial issues.

Management Committee (MCOM): consists of senior representatives of the Work Package leader organisations who are responsible for the tactical planning of the platform and its work packages. The Management Committee's task is to ensure a fair and equitable division of efforts between themselves and the project partners.

Technical Secretariat (TS): responsible for the day-to-day administrative and technical management of PLATINA. It carries out the actions delegated to it by the Management Committee and the Executive Board. The Technical Secretariat will also be the focal point for the organisation of the network and its dissemination and exploitation. This includes technical coordination and responsibility, coordination and liaison with the European Commission, financial administration, a communication desk, as well as a project back office.

Project partners: experts who provide technical expertise and inputs to the various work packages and activities. These experts are chosen from inland navigation industry, consultants, promotion agencies and administrations.
