Organizational structure of the e:Med projects


The e:Med Project Committee

The function of the project committee (PK) as an internal body is comparable to that of a management board. The PK is the central player in the internal, comprehensive coordination of e:Med modules I-III. The project committee organizes communications structures within e:Med and operates a comprehensive exchange of information about objectives and progress of works for individual research groups. The PK actively searches for reasonable networking options and potential synergies. Essential tasks of the PK include coordination of e:Med’s public image, active networking of the program with other national and international research initiatives, and the development of ideas and recommendations for strategic improvement and application of systems medicine in Germany.
The term of office for PK members is two years. Spokespersons are reelected annually.

Management Office of the e:Med Project Committee

The management office represents the operational level of coordination of the systems medicine network. It acts on behalf of the project committee and therefore in the interests of all e:Med scientists. The office has an important function as an internal information interface between the PK and individual consortia and groups and as a networking control room with stakeholders from science, public sphere, politics and business. The office supports the board in communications and networking and represents e:Med in terms of public image activities. Its tasks include the website layout and media relations, as well as organization of conferences and workshops and organization of project groups for current overlapping issues.
