Project structure

The project activities will be executed under five work packages (WPs).The key tasks of each WP are: WP1 management of the project; WP2 – 4 processing of information and WP5 dissemination and communication. All activities will be executed within 36 months, so INSPIRATION will be a 3-year project. WP1 and WP5 will be active throughout the whole duration of the project. WP2, 3 and 4 only for a limited period: WP2 starts at the beginning of the project, and stops when it delivers its input for the work to start in WP3. WP3 stops when it delivers its input to WP4 which concludes its activities at the end of the project.

WP1: Project management

WP2: Demands of research from industry, end-users and funders (State-of-the-art at national levels)

WP3: Transnational commons aggregated under integrated themes

WP4: Developing, Delivering and Match-Making of a Strategic Research Agenda

WP5: International Dissemination and Communication


A key-activity in INSPIRATION will be – as it is typical for a Coordination and Support Action – the collation, review and synthesis of information. This is the core activity of WP2 – 4 and this activity is graphically represented as a ‘funnel’: collated information enters the funnel as ‘input’, where it is reviewed and synthesized. This is done mainly in workshops preceded and finalized by deskwork and working meetings with consortium members active in the specific WP. The synthesized information exits the funnel as ‘output’, i.e. key deliverables of the project.
