Project management


The management of the Polifonia project was executed by the project steering group. Additionally, an external evaluator was appointed to ensure permanent monitoring and evaluation of the quality of the project’s work.

The steering group was composed by a representative of the contracting institution as chairman, the chairpersons of all groups, the external evaluator and the "Polifonia" Office Team.
