The Project Steering Committee comprises representatives from each of the ERA-AGE 2 partner organisations and a chair, Professor Marja Jylha (University of Tampere). The Committee is responsible for all strategic planning and decision making within the project, ensuring that the timetable is maintained and that objectives, milestones and goals are met, taking any corrective action necessary to ensure this. The committee's primary tasks include:
Quality controlling of all reports and other outputs; agreeing agendas and programmes for workshops and conferences.
Maintaining the highest standards of governance.
Overseeing the promotion of gender equality in the networks activities.
Overseeing the implementation of other key ERA-AGE 2 principles such as interdisciplinarity and research user involvement.
