MARS - Marker Assisted Resistance to Sharka

Management Structure


The Coordinator of the project is INRA, represented by Dr. V.Decroocq. The primary role of the coordinator will be to represent the Consortium towards the EC as well as to be the promoter and supervisor of the overall technical and scientific progress of the MARS.


The General Assembly is the decision-making body of the project. Organized by partner P12 (CRPV) and chaired by the project coordinator, it is composed of one representative per MARS partner, each partner having one (1) vote. The General Assembly will be responsible for the strategic orientation of the project including the preparation of the project exploitation plans and IPR issues.


The Executive Committee is the decision-implementing body of the project. It is made up of the leaders of each workpackage and chaired by the co-ordinator Dr V.Decroocq. The Executive Committee will be in charge of the operational management of all the activities of MARS. It will also prepare the decisions to be taken by the General Assembly and ensure that these decisions are properly  implemented, integrating  recommendations, and surveying ethical and gender issues.
In terms of decision  making each project  partner  represented in the Executive Committee will have one  vote.
The Executive Committee will also be in charge of resource management of workpackages.
The Executive Committee will be supported by the work of the administrative team including quality control and preparing meetings with the EC, the preparation and transmission of deliverables.


This board will be constituted, in the first stage of MARS, of representatives of both Biotech and Nursery MARS SMEs. It is expected to enlarge the IP&E board to representatives of extension services, unions of fruit producers and policy makers, upon request by those stakeholders or/and by proposition of the MARS coordinator or by any member of the IP&E board, and after signature of a confidentiality agreement. One quarter of the bi-annual MARS meetings will be devoted to specific consultation of the IP&E board and the sessions will be presided by the WP2 and WP3 leaders, Dr F.Moreau and Dr M.Foschini, respectively (who are representing both the Biotech and the nursery stakeholders). A total of 5 to 6 meetings are planned over the two years of MARS. The analysis will be completed by comparing the stakeholders’ needs versus the current activities planned in MARS and will help to prepare the final MARS exploitation plan. Recommendations will be put forward from this analysis to deal with any gaps identified in order to match MARS with needs expressed by stakeholders and national/international other projects and initiatives.


Daily administrative management work and project logistics will be handled by the Project Manager (the coordinator) supported by Administrative staff at INRA.
