The present document provides an overview over the Quality, Risk and Contingency Management Plan procedures that are being and will be used throughout the life cycle of the NEWSERA project.
The first section describes the Quality Methods that will be applied during the project’s implementation. In the second section, the Risk Management strategy is outlined, followed by Critical Implementation Risks along with its Mitigation
This deliverable is specially relevant considering actions originally foreseen and uncertainty from the current COVID-19 pandemic. Several actions have been envisaged to reduce the impact from potential delays or barriers to implementing the project actions in relation to the crisis. The most relevant adaptation has been the rethinking of the NEWSERA #CitSciComm Labs in terms of location
(decentralization from the European level to the national level in the NEWSERA countries), calendar (rescheduling of the Labs) and format (from face-to-face to local and remote activities). However, the NEWSERA Consortium thinks that the new strategy will allow to increase the impact of the project actions by being able to reach a higher number of participants. Thus, it has the potential to increase the overall quality of the NEWSERA results.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 873125
