Participants

The 28 participating organisations have been carefully selected to provide all the expertise needed for the the project. The 1+MG Initiative signatories will be the longer term funders and implementers, so there is a close alignment between B1MG and 1+MG participants (See LINK NEEDED ). Almost all of the 1+MG coordination team are involved in the B1MG project, either as a Work Package leader or a Governing Board member. Many B1MG partners are involved in the 1+MG working groups.

At a country level, the B1MG consortium includes partners and Governing Board members beyond the 1+MG signatories. It remains open to involve additional EU Member States and associated countries during the lifetime of the project.
