The project work has been divided into six workpackages (WP). WP1 includes the Coordination & Dissemination activities. Research & technology development activities are covered by WP2, WP3, WP4, within three Design Campaigns, and run sequentially  during the three years of the project. In parallel, Collaborative techniques activities are covered in WP5 as well as Knowledge enable information technologies activities in WP6 all along the project duration.
