GENI Project Lead Welcome Page

Congratulations on becoming a GENI Project Lead! Learn more about GENI Projects in the Key GENI Concepts page.

As a Project Lead you

Project Lead Responsibilities

As a project lead you are responsible for all GENI-related actions by your project members. You must therefore add only people you know or collaborate with to your projects.

Tips for Project Leads

  1. Create separate projects for your different research projects and classes you teach. This will allow you to control access to your projects.
  2. Set expiration dates for projects with a known end date. For example, for class projects you might pick an expiration date a few days after the end of the semester. When the project expires, all members will be removed from the project and you will no longer be responsible for their actions on that project.
  3. You can delegate some of your lead functions to project admins. For example, you may make your research assistant an admin for a research project or your teaching assistant an admin for your class project. Admins can invite or add members to your project. You are still responsible for the actions of your project members.
  4. Do not accept request to join a project if you do not intend to collaborate with the requestor. Please forward the join request to so we can help the requestor find a suitable project.
