Students belonging to ESN are also assisting to QES in quality monitoring of the project.

QES oversee that project execution takes place in accordance with the plan, and signalize important deviations in terms of results, quality, timing and resources spent. QES also work for implementing and managing the ethical and legal issues of all procedures in the project, ensuring that the guiding principles and the main procedures regarding privacy, data protection, security, legal issues and ethical challenges will be followed.
