Project Structure

The strategy of the work plan has been conceived along three main ideas:

-     Allow the end-users to pilot and control the whole process

-     Avoid replicating topics already covered in previous projects dealing with CBRNE and making best use of existing projects

-     Evaluate the achievements (services and performances) with concrete tests and trials essentially based on real environments and data to demonstrate affordable improvements in resilience.


The project is built around four major phases:

-      The first phase, grouping WP20, WP70 and WP80 is the phase where the end-users will define and specify the performances they need, the base-lining of the current resilience of the legacy systems, and where the initial societal, ethical and legal aspects will be considered.

-     The second phase, WP30 is the primary development phase. Other systems/elements from other projects and new tools will be developed/matured for the EDEN demonstrations.

-     The third phase is the Demonstration phase (WP40, WP50, WP60) which involves the preparation, system integration and execution of the demonstrations. There will be combination of small, medium and large scale demonstrations themselves which will be based on the detailed scenarios from WP20.

-     The fourth phase will encompass the evaluation of the demonstrations themselves, and the societal and exploitation activities (WP70, WP80 and WP90).
