WP5: Legal and Governance Framework
The overall objectives of WP5 underpin the other EMPHASIS-PREP Work Packages taking into account the scientific and technical aspects of EMPHASIS infrastructure and services. WP5 will:
- Identify and establish a legal entity for EMPHASIS and ensuring a relationship between the EMPHASIS legal entity, national nodes and services including access;
- Develop a governance structure to ensure optimal and effective development, implementation and operation of EMPHASIS which also allows a smooth transition between various stages of the EMPHASIS lifecycle;
- Develop options and process for an open and transparent process for selection of the EMPHASIS host country (and corresponding services).
