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).
