EuroVO-DCA Project Coordination Team (PCT)
The EuroVO-DCA Project Co-ordination Team (PCT) is a panel appointed by the EuroVO-DCA Board. It acts as the project technical management body. It is chaired by the DCA Project Manager, who reports on its activities to the Board. The chair of the TEG is a member of the PCT. All partners are represented in the PCT, which is also formed so as to cover all Work Package activities. The PCT meets every six months, receives and discusses reports from the DCA PM and from the partners, assesses the project activities and produces a review report. At the end of the first project yearly cycle, it proposes the EuroVO-DCA work plan for the following cycle. Technical liaison with the other components of Euro-VO are accomplished through the representatives of the partners in charge of the Euro-VO Facility Centre (ESO and ESA) and of the Euro-VO Technology Centre (LU representing Astrogrid), who are also in charge of different aspects of the Support to take-up and implementation coordination activities (WP3).

During the Board kick-off meeting, it was noticed that the Board has done most of the PCT kick-off meeting work, in particular for discussing the Project Plan. The decision to hold a PCT kick-off meeting was left to the Project Manager, to be taken after the first e-mail exchanges on the Preliminary Project Plan elaboration. The Project Manager decided then that it was not necessary to organise the PCT kick-off meeting.
The project manager assisted by the PCT will manage the Self-evaluation matrix
and the Risk Register
during the duration of the project.
The Preliminary Project Plan (D2), and the Revised Project Plan (D3) are available here
