Project Organization

The organisation of FOEDUS requires a combination of working methods distributed among two types of Work Packages (WPs), horizontal and core WPs. Each one of the WPs will be coordinated by one of the Associated Partners.
The main objective of the WPs is described below:

Horizontal Work Packages:

Coordination of the Project: Actions undertaken to manage the joint action and to make sure that it is implemented as planned. (WP Leader: CNT, Italy)

Dissemination of the Project: Actions undertaken to ensure that the results and deliverables of the joint action will be made available to the target groups. (WP Leader: OVSz, Hungary) 

Evaluation of the Project:  Actions undertaken to verify if the joint action is being implemented as planned and reaches the objectives. (WP Leader: EOM, Greece)

Core Work Packages:

Definition of guidelines for cooperation in cross-border organ exchanges and analysis of barriers/obstacles:  Overview/analysis of contents of existing bilateral and multilateral agreements between national or international organizations aimed at cross-border organ exchanges. The main output will be the definition of guidelines on basic principles for such exchanges and recommendation to overcome hurdles. (WP Leader: ETI, International Foundation)

Consensus on donor medical information recommended for international organ exchanges:  Consensus on organ specific forms to be used for international cross-border exchanges and on a guideline for items that were recommended to adopt for donor evaluation. Based on experience, these medical advices will provide specific support and foster exchanges through harmonization of practices. (WP Leader: ABM, France)
