The ECPE Competence Centres are invited to submit research topics in an annual

The Principal Partners have seat and vote in the
Project Coordination Committee (PCC) where the research topics are discussed and selected and, at the end, the results are presented.

ECPE projects in an Expert Board with regular phone or web conferences.
