This work package sets out the 'ethics requirements' that the project must comply with.
Human participants (stakeholders) will be involved in the project during the dissemination and exploitation phase. This includes events, seminars, webinars and video conferences. Additionally, in order to achieve transnational cooperation in evaluation processes to select the most promising innovation projects the project will use experts (internal and external). An international panel is planned to be introduced during the project. The purpose of the panel is to rank the most promising projects and boost their potential for scale-up via additional services, which will be developed by the Consortium and possibly provided by various experts. However, the proposal does not clearly define how these experts will be selected or recruited.

The consortium of the GO-SME project consists of 15 members, RFO’s.
The roles of consortium members are different and thus the range of personal and other data they are going to deal with is different as well.
The Coordinator, work package, and task leaders will deal with the personal data of consortium members and data that participants must submit as a deliverable.
RFO which is going to launch a call for proposals under the GO-SME project may deal with the data of applicants, beneficiaries, evaluators, and coaches.
As each assigned point concerns each RFO, TA CR as the Coordinator asked each member to comment on each point. RFOs input their statements in the shared document. (All mentioned attachments are kept on file.)
