EECS Project Update
Work is now well underway for Work Package 3 - Technical Requirements Analysis and Scientific Solutions. A requirement of this work package is to develop the EECS Technical Specifications. Currently a draft EECS four core technical specification is being developed among the three RTDs of the Project.
To enable the successful outcome of Work Package 3, a Technical Workshop took place on the 15th and 16th of October at the Radisson Hotel in London. This technical workshop was arranged in order for the RTDs involved in the project to present their technical specifications for the EECS prototype to the SMEs involved in the project. The membership of this workshop was drawn from industrial experts, academics and ECCA.
