Project Proposal, Approval, and Execution Working Group

GP2 will see a large number of analytical projects, outside of the core analyses, being proposed by its participants. In order to remain equitable and eliminate needless redundancy, we aim to have a process to handle these proposals and enable efficient project execution. Leveraging perspective and expertise from diverse participants, the working group structure is based on the key principles of equity, collaboration and cooperation, open communication, transparency, accessibility, and efficiency. 

We also aim to support the GP2 network to promote opportunities for research and training; through an established mechanism that involves explicit attachment to projects with diverse trainees, facilitated through the Training, Networking, and Communication Working Group.
