The project is composed of seven work packages, the first four of which create new knowledge and design tools in areas where there has been up to now little research. The fifth and sixth work packages offer and exploit both new and existing information in practice. The seventh work package deals with management and governance. The key topics dealt with in the project are linked directly to the needs of industry today but also to the needs of standards and guidelines.
