CADRE project governance is community led i.e., project partners and affiliates represent key stakeholders (researchers, data custodians, research support and research infrastructure providers) and user-communities.

All project partners have representatives on the steering committee and share project oversight i.e., providing organisational authority, participating in strategic decision-making and monitoring project progress. 

The CADRE project is jointly overseen at steering committee level with the IRISS project.

Project activity is overseen by a Steering Committee and managed through a Project Management Office (PMO), Content Working Group (CWG), Technical Working Group (TWG) and International Advisory Board (IAB). The Australian Data Archive (The Australian National University) as lead agent runs the Project Management Office and coordinates the Content and Technical working groups. All project partners provide their expertise and represent their organisation’s interests and user-communities directly in the two working groups.

Project management is overseen by Prof Nick Biddle, A/Prof Steven McEachern and Ingrid Mason.

International Advisory Board

Project affiliates working outside of Australia will receive outputs that arise from project activity (relevant to their area of expertise and organisation) and provide feedback and represent their organisation’s interests and user-communities indirectly.
