Steering Group

The overall steering of the project lies in the responsibility of the Steering Group which is comprised of delegates of the involved regional authorities.
The Steering Groups tasks are the monitoring of the project, the reviewing and approving of the work plan, the selection of the pilot projects and – if necessary – agreeing any changes to the project. Each partner region is also advised to set up a regional partnership to ensure the necessary linkages between different services at the local and regional level.
