The Monitoring Committee is the main decision-making body and is responsible for supervising the programme implementation. It reviews annual implementation plans and proposes any recommendations necessary to achieve programme objectives. It is also responsible for adopting methodology, criteria for selection of projects before the launch of each call for proposals, as well as selecting the projects to be funded.
Each Partner State is equally represented, meaning that each Partner State has one vote. The decisions are taken by consensus. At the meetings of the Monitoring Committee, the European Commission and the Managing Authority have an advisory role, while the Audit Authority of the programme is an independent observer.
