ICT4COP is a large-scale social and technology research project, involving multiple research institutions and researchers, and many countries in several continents.
Additionally, and although our ambition is to advance the scholarly agenda within our fields of research, we are committed to sharing our results within but also beyond the academic community.
With this scale and the five-year project duration, we have a comprehensive, yet purpose-built operative model:
- The Project Coordinator is the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, NMBU, and its Department of International Environment and Development Studies, Noragric.
- The General Assembly includes representatives from all our partner institutions. This is the highest decision-making organ.
- The Project Steering Committee is the ordinary decision-making body and consists of Dr. Ingrid Nyborg, our Project Leader, Professor Dr. Alice Hills, Durham University, Professor Dr. John Andrew McNeish (NMBU), Valerie Oliphant, Project Director with SIMLab, Chief Superintendent Tor Damkås of the Norwegian Police University College, Professor Dr. Thomas Feltes of Ruhr University Bochum, Ms. Ingunn Andersen, Project Coordinator (NMBU) and Mr. Frode Bjerkås, Project Resaerch Communications Specialist (NMBU).
- The Coordination Committee, responsible for day-to-day running of the project, consist of Dr. Nyborg, Ms. Andersen, and Mr. Bjerkås.
