D6.4 – Technical and Exploitation Workshops held during second year

The project commits to organise at least a workshop on the technical contents of the project during the second year and an internal Exploitation workshop intended to maximise and find new ways of exploiting the results produced by the project. This deliverable corresponds to both workshops. As metrics for validation, we will check the attendance and will produce a satisfaction poll on the audience. The workshop will be satisfactory if the poll results in higher than 70% of positive votes.

D6.6 – Demonstrations at Mobile World Congress’19 and EUCNC’19 or equivalent

Technology demonstration in a high impact venue, such as MWC’19 (preferable) and/or similar venue. As evaluation metric we will use number of people stopping by the booth and the increase of number of web page visits during the exposition time.

D6.3 – Demonstrations at EUCNC’18 or equivalent

Technology demonstration in a high impact venue, such as EuCNC’18 or similar venue. As evaluation metric we will use number of people stopping by the booth and the increase of number of web page visits during the exposition time.
