  • 2. University of Nottingham


This document is the deliverable “D1.1 – Project Management Plan” of the Horizon2020 project “Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud” (hereinafter also referred to as “SSHOC”, project reference: 823782).

The SSHOC Project Management Plan is the central document describing major aspects of the project management process. It is intended to provide guidance and direction for specific management, planning, and control activities such as scheduling, reporting, communication, quality, etc. The focus of this document is to describe the approaches being taken in the project to manage the various work packages, share and store documents, communicate among consortium members, control the quality of project deliverables, and provide links to other important procedures i.e. related to governance, described in Grant Agreement and/or Consortium Agreement.

The Project Management Plan is a living document and should be updated continuously throughout the project. Benefits of creating a Project Management Plan include:

  • clearly define roles, responsibilities, processes and activities;

  • increase probability that projects will be completed on-time, within budget, and with a high degree of quality;

  • ensuring understanding of what was agreed upon;

  • helping project teams identify and plan for how project activities will be managed (budget, quality, schedule, etc.).

The intended audience of the SSHOC Project Management Plan consists of members of the SSHOC consortium and the Project Officer at the controlling and granting side.
