The CRiTERIA project is organized into 10 work packages, which are structured into 4 tracks: a Foundational Track, a Methodology Track, a Technology Track and an Impact Track.
The Foundational Track includes foundational activities for framing the overall project work. This framing includes: a) overall organization and coordination of the project work (WP1), b) deepening the understanding of the requirements of the target community (framing with respect to requirements, WP2), c) creating a legal, ethical and societal framework for the project activities (WP4) and d) consideration of further Ethics Requirements (WP10).
The Methodology Track, which is closely interlinked with the Technology Track, contains the central work package working on extended risk analysis methodology.
The Technology Track organizes the technology-related activities of the project, including work packages focusing on the development of technologies for supporting the identification and analysis of migration related risks (WP5 and WP6) and work packages for the integration of the aforementioned technologies into the CRiTERIA system (WP7).
The WPs in the highly relevant Impact Track tackle project impact from two perspectives: the validation of the developed methods and tools via pilots (WP8) and the effective dissemination and exploitation of project results (W9). The Figure below shows the 10 work packages of the CRiTERIA project, their main interactions, and their organization into the four tracks.

WP1: Project Management & Coordination (LUH)
The project management encompasses contractual issues, technical, administrative, finance, communication and knowledge management inside the project, and external relationships between the project and the EC. The Project Coordinator will lead the work package, but will be assisted by members of the CRiTERIA management team including the Research Manager, the Integration Manager, the Innovation Manager and the work package leaders. This WP has the following objectives:
- Ensure effective planning, implementation, coordination and achievement of the project activities, including timely production of deliverables and successful completion of the tasks.
- Provide project structure and support to assist decision making, internal and external communications, encourage accountability and control, minimise risk, identify and exploit project-related opportunities.
- Coordinate quality control for project output and help the consortium achieve their project objectives.
