This document underlines the management procedures for an effective tracking of the CREDENTIAL project development including a detailed description of the work plan and strategy.Especially, the principal aims of this handbook are to:
*give an overview of the CREDENTIAL project,
*lay down the rules for collaborative work within the project,
*define the procedures for communication, meetings, deliverables, and publications,
*describe the roles within the project and link them to persons, and
*provide templates for documents relevant to the CREDENTIAL project.
The CREDENTIAL Handbook is required reading for all project participants, especially for new personnel.
As the handbook is supposed to be a “living” document, in addition to the contractual version in month 3, updates will be made whenever necessary.
