WP1 foresees the development of a methodology to be followed for the establishment of a scientific network between the UCTM and the advanced European partners in the defined field. It constitutes the timeframe for initiating the collaboration bond between the 3 partners, as a pre-cursor to the actual implementation in the following WPs. Thus, the first 2 months of the project will be used to connect physically all teams (on site or online) to coordinate all planned tasks during the project progress and to keep abreast with the progress of WP1 tasks until the finalization of the framework. For this purpose, one expert visits to UCTM is planned and several contacts via video conference.
