Overview of activities
Four major R&D Activities will be implemented under this Action. Noteworthy is that these
activities are not mutually exclusive, but partly interdependent, and that they are not executed
in a linear but an iterative manner. A database will be created to record all the findings of the
Activities, be they preliminary or consolidated. With specific problems at hand, members of
this Action can access and retrieve relevant data from the database. These transactions will be
rendered transparent so that the providers of the data can know to whom and for what purpose
the data are delivered and used. Consequently, opportunities for collaboration that have not
been foreseen can be seized and the networking will become even tighter.
Working Groups (WG)
Four major R&D activities will be implemented by of four Working Groups (WGs):
This activity will critically examine the
current use of design and evaluation methods and contribute to the
maturation of those methods
The primary objective of this activity is to identify and analyse
sector-unique design and evaluation methodologies in terms of their
underlying conceptual models, practical protocols, and transferability
to other sectors.
The main goal of this activity is to identify and critically
review the quality attributes and software standards that are currently
prioritized in design and evaluation processes in different sectors.
This activity is concerned by the development of a generic method
selection and application framework that effectively leverage and
support interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial design and evaluation solutions.
