It separates project co-ordination activities from research activities. It also distinguishes between decision-making structures and organisation of daily operations.

The names of the members of the PB are shown in the table below. In cases where agreement on a decision cannot be reached, then a partner may escalate approval of the decision to the above unit in the reporting hierarchy. E.g. decisions made at task level can be escalated to the work package level, decisions made at WP level can be escalated to the PB, and decisions made by the PB can be escalated to the PGA.
