The Gaia-ESO project is following standard proven large-project management methods, with responsibilities and communications linked to work effort requirements and deliveries. The two Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs) are the point of contact to ESO, and are assisted by a steering group. A set of work packages matched to task requirements has been defined, with sub-packages as appropriate. There are twenty working groups (WGs). All groups involved are active participants – the work will be distributed to teams with relevant expertise and appropriate resources, with clearly defined and agreed local responsibilities. Each active participant group includes a number of Co-Investigators (Co-Is).
The Gaia-ESO Survey project has excited such considerable enthusiasm in the European astronomical community, and contributes to such a wide range of astronomical interests, that we have over 250 confirmed active Co-I participants from several institutes, with continuing requests. The names of Principal Co-Investigators and Steering Committee members are given below. See Working Groups for Working Group Coordinators and responsibilities. Full list of currently participating institutes and Co-Is can be found in Gaia-ESO Members document (PDF).
