Activities in D-BOX 

Infoterra will contribute to work packages 2.2 “Survey of Practices and Existing Tools” and 2.3 “Evaluation of Users needs and Tools Requirements” by using our prior work on the ESA study to provide input into the scenarios and user needs. We will also carry out a small amount of work in work package 7.3 “Evaluation and Recommendation for Future Work” and in 8.1 “Preparation of Dissemination Program”. Our primary role in this project is in work package 4.2 “Requirements for the Toolbox Elements” which we are leading and will involve a robust methodology to detail the tools requirements.
