Approach and implementation
We have had several project management meetings to plan all activities during step 1. Stakeholders from academia, industry, government, county councils, police and emergency services were ivited to participate early in the needs analysis. Two workshops with all stakeholders has been carried out in order to find the most prioritized needs. Twenty organizations have participated. The work process has worked well and we have identified the areas considered most important to work with. All parties involved in the consortium is also very well suited for the task.
