The tasks in CryptQ are organised into 5 work packages (WP) which have each been assigned a WP leader. The entire work is overseen and coordinated by the Project leader and while a Steering Committee, consisting of representatives of each of the project partners, is responsible for high-level governance of the project. The entire governance structure of the project is summarised below.
