Organization levels

 Steering Committee

This committee includes the persons nominated by the Partner and Associate Partner Agencies. The main role of the steering committee is to follow the milestones of the project in coordination with the PI, to review the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Construction Phase that will be prepared during Phase A, and to organise in Europe (and Brazil) the scientific and financial support of the ELT/MOS. It will includes countries in the core of the project (Partners : France, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Brazil, Germany) as well as other participating countries (Associate Partners : Austria, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden) including those interested in financially supporting the project in exchange for Guaranteed Observing Time, or their participation in Public Surveys.

Board

This board acts as the executive level of management. It meets to discuss the project progress typically once every three months, and makes scientific, managerial and technical decisions at the various steps of the project. It is established by the PI and the CoIs.

Science Management

Science activities are driven by a PS and a CoPS. Project Scientists lead the Science Team and works especially on Science Trade-offs and preparation of Public Surveys. They will manage the overall simulations of the Project (MOSAIC and Surveys), and will be part of strategic choices on requirements and implementation options that could impact the science performance.

Technical Management

The instrumental team is lead by the PM with the assistance of a deputy. The PM manages the instrumental team activities (SE, dep. SE, WPMs and WPSEs) in order to come out, getting as inputs the Top Level Requirements as expected by Science, with instrument design(s) that will address the needs and will allow to meet the requirements. Furthermore, the PM will be responsible for solutions
