Abstract

This document reflects the distributed administrative structure to be put into practice by the INKE group for the purpose of governing itself as it carries out work on its MCRI-funded initiative. The INKE group consists of [1] academic researchers, [2] academic research partners (many invested as stakeholders as well), [3] an international advisory board, [4] a partners committee, [5] individual research area groups (RAG) each with their own (co)leads who act as administrators for the group and form the overall RAG administrative group committee, and [6] an executive committee (EC) that represents all areas of activity in the research endeavour and also includes an administrative / management advisor (who carries out work and provides leadership on process, not research content) and a project manager. Taken as a whole, the structure of the group is an embodiment of the distributed administrative and authoritative principles that have evolved over the several years of the project‘s foundation, and the materials that follow have been assembled and authored by the entirety of the administrative team in that spirit. Ultimately, this document represents an agreement we have made with each other for how we will work together in pursuit of achieving the goals outlined in our research application, in recognition of the fact that the research funding isn‘t made to specific individuals but, rather, to the group as a whole—on the basis that we as a group will make every attempt to follow the plans we have made to date. This document is also closely aligned with the processes outlined in two related documents: the annual calendar and the annual RAG planning process.
