The proposed structure of EGI-ACE governance and management represents three main challenges:
- understanding the EOSC landscape (Project Management Board, Strategy foresight expert group),
- provisioning of services to meet customer needs (Service Delivery and Support board) and
- emphasising the importance of innovation management in project management (the Innovation manager is a member in all management boards/groups).
The management structure for EGI-ACE will be supported by the relevant EGI boards that will have an advisory role to the where appropriate. Being the EGI Foundation the organization entrusted by the Council to run coordination functions for the EGI Federation, project support and management activities are run by the EGI Foundation. Consortium beneficiaries are involved through the project governance and management structures to set the strategy for the project and oversee its implementation.
