The RISE governance is assured by the Project Coordinator, the General Assembly (GA), and the Management Board (MB). The management of the project relies on the Project Office, at ETH Zurich.
The Project Coordinator (Prof. Stefan Wiemer) is responsible for the global coordination and organization of activities, oversight of technical, scientific, legal and financial issues, and reporting all activities to the GA. The Project Office, including the RISE Manager, the Communication Officer, and an administrative/financial officer responsible for the operational and financial administration of RISE as well as for the provision of required documentation to the European Commission, assists him.
The General Assembly (GA) is composed of one representative of each beneficiary named in the proposal. It is the body responsible for the grant and maintains the overview of the RISE project and its progress according to the Grant Agreement and the Consortium Agreement. The GA decides on issues concerning the Grant Agreement and associated relationships with the European Commission through the Coordinator and it establishes appropriate guidelines for assessing and monitoring the project achievements.
The Management Board (MB) is in charge of the operational management (decision process, risk assessment, information flows) of the RISE implementation and of ensuring the cohesion of the whole RISE community.
