Micro-net Administration

Micro-net Team Composition:

The Micro-net Team Composition diagram is created using a cycle radial venn diagram. This radial venn diagram is used to show both overlapping relationships and the relationship to the central idea. It is made up of a total of eight circles to demonstrate that each team member communicates with each other. This diagram resembles a sunflower and is created by creating one bigger circle in the center of the page labeled as “Lead Applicant/Principal Investigator”. There are seven other smaller circles (same size) that overlap the bigger circle as well as each individual smaller circle. Start drawing the first small circle above the bigger circle ensuring that the smaller circle slightly overlaps the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Co-investigator 1”. Next draw the second smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Co-investigator 1” circle and the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Co-investigator 2”. Next draw the third smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Co-investigator 2” circle and the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Co-investigator 3”.  Next draw the fourth smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Co-investigator 3” circle and the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Co-investigator 4”. Next draw the fifth smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Co-investigator 4” circle and the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Optional: 6 additional co-investigators”. Next draw the six smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Optional: 6 additional co-investigators” circle and the bigger circle. Label this small circle as “Optional: 2 principal investigators”. Next draw the seventh and final smaller circle (in a clockwise direction) ensuring that it overlaps “Optional: 2 principal investigators” circle, the bigger circle and the first smaller circle labelled “Co-investigator 1”. Label this smaller circle as “Optional: any number of collaborators”. The color of each circle is purple with the three optional circles being a lighter shade of purple.

Micro-net Administration:

The Micro-net Administration diagram is created using a hierarchy organizational chart. This organizational chart is used to show the reporting relationships within the Micro-net. The diagram is made up of 5 rectangular boxes that are the same size. Create the first rectangular box and labelled it as “DND IDEaS”. Under this box, there is a line that connects to another rectangular box. Label the second rectangular box as “Initial Recipient” with “Canadian University” in brackets under “Initial Recipient”. Under this box, there is a line that connects to a third rectangular box. Label the third rectangular box as “Ultimate Recipient”. Next, draw the fourth rectangular box to the left of the third rectangular box. Label the third box as “Ultimate Recipient”. Draw a line from this rectangular box to the “Initial Recipient” rectangular box. Finally, draw the fifth rectangular box to the right of the third rectangular box labelled as “Ultimate Recipient”. Label the fifth rectangular box as “Optional: Additional Ultimate Recipients”. Draw a line from this rectangular box to the “Initial Recipient” rectangular box. The color of each rectangular box is purple with the fifth Optional rectangular being a lighter shade of purple.
