The EMI Project Boards

Collaboration Board (CB): is composed of the representatives of each beneficiary of the grant agreement. The CB is responsible to coordinate any administrative activity within the beneficiary home institute or company and to define the overall long-term strategic objectives of the project. The chair of the CB is elected by the CB members for a fixed duration and rotated according to the rules that will be established in the Consortium Agreement.

Executive Collaboration Board (ECB): is a consulting committee within the CB composed of two representatives from the CB for each of the participating middleware consortia (ARC, gLite and UNICORE). The ECB represents the CB in all the situations where a full participation of all beneficiaries is not required and a faster decisional process is necessary to assist the PD in short-term or urgent matters, mainly on non-contractual issues concerning the relationships among the Middleware Consortia. The ECB is also the first escalation step in the resolution of grave technical disagreements between the Project Director and other members of the project.

Project Executive Board (PEB): is responsible to assist the Project Director in the execution of the project plans and in monitoring the milestones, achievements, risks and conflicts within the project. It is led by the PD and is composed of the Work Package Leaders, the Technical Director and the Deputy Technical Director.

Project Technical Board (PTB): is led by the TD and composed of the Technical Area Leaders and a representative and is responsible to assist the TD in defining the technical vision of the project and deciding on specific technical issues. The PTB members are the coordinators of the project Technological Areas. The PTB can invite experts (e.g. product team leaders, component developers, etc.) or delegate specific tasks to appointed working groups as required.

Engineering Management Team (EMT): is lead by the Release Manager and composed of the Product Team Leaders (or duly appointed representatives), a QA representative, a Security representative, representatives of the Operations teams of the major infrastructures (EGI, PRACE, etc.) and invited experts as necessary. The role of the EMT is to manage the release process and the 'standard‘ changes, that is all the changes that are pre-approved based on established policies and do not need to be individually approved by the PEB or the PTB. This includes software defects triaging and prioritization, technical management of releases, integration issues, and user support request analysis. The EMT is therefore the natural aggregation point for all PTs to discuss practical integration and release issues and is adapted to the largely distributed nature of the project. This mechanism has been already successfully employed in other very distributed projects like EGEE III. The Release Manager reports to the SA1 Work package leader.
