The Steering Committee, where both Parties are equally represented, is responsible for the overall direction and supervision of the BA activities. In particular, for each project, it appoints the Project Leader and the project team staff, approves the structure of the project team, the project plan, work programmes and annual reports, and decides on the participation of any other Party.
Project Committees are supervisory bodies which advise, monitor and report on the progress of each project to the Steering Committee.
Each Project Leader, supported by their corresponding Project Team, is responsible for the co-ordination of the implementation of their project, including preparation of the project plan (covering the whole project), the yearly work programmes, and annual reports.
The Implementing Agencies are responsible for managing the Parties’ contributions to the Broader Approach. The Agencies are Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST) for Japan and Fusion for Energy (F4E) for Europe.
