It took five days and around 75 people to complete the kick-off meeting for the MONICA project which took place at the Project Coordinator, Fraunhofer FIT’s premises near Bonn from 23-27th January 2017.

Some of the 28 partners met for the first time, others knew each other beforehand,  and during the week, all gained a common understanding of the vision and partner roles, before entering into the details of user needs and system architecture in workshops.

The next step will be to establish user scenarios and elicit requirements from each pilot site, in terms of function and technical design.
