EUropean ROBotic framework for bipedal locomotion bENCHmarking

Deliverables

Communication Plan

The Communication Plan will ensure the design, implementation and follow up of an efficient communication strategy, starting with the mapping of Key Messages and targeted audiences to any adjustment that will be necessarily made during the implementation of the different actions. The Communication Plan will include specific strategies focused on enhancing the impact and performance indicators of the Financial Support to Third Parties actions.

FSTP Committee Structure

The FSTP Committee will be appointed by the EUROBENCH Steering Committee adviced by the Scientific Advisory Board. A maximum of three experts will be contacted and selected according to the requirements defined during T7.1 (included in D7.1). This Deliverable will describe the FSTP Committee structure.

Risk Management Plan

Risk management plan identifying sources of risks and severity, likelihood of occurrence and controllability assessment, risk responses (strategy to reduce negative impact, mitigation and contingency plans as preliminary defined) and adjust the plan and managing events that may have a positive (opportunities) or negative (threats) effect on project’s development and sustainability. Released in M3, it will remain a living document during the whole project duration.

Report on advisory management procedures

Report containing the advisory management procedures in order to enable monitoring and internal and external international guidance on the conducted activities during the evolution of the EUROBENCH project

Description of the Facilities: Building, spaces and commercial systems available

A report with the description of the facilities after finishing the followgin tasks: • Define and organize the spaces needed to allocate the different test benches, according to the technical requirements specified in T2.6. • Start the purchasing of the commercial systems that will not be developed within the project.

Project Management Handbook

Document summarising all the required knowledge for the good management of the project (administrative forms, financial aspects, quality…).

Submission Website - FSTP-1 Action

The web platform that will contain all the necessary information (including FAQs) and active procedures to launch the FSTP-1 action call and perform the submission process.

EUROBENCH website

The EUROBENCH Website is an user-friendly interface will help orientate the potential user to the appropriate facility depending on his/her needs. It will also have diverse sections giving an overview of the project presenting the partners, giving resources and access to public results and deliverable (see task 8.4) There will be a “end-user and stakeholder” dedicated section with limited or restricted access for those to subscribe to news or updates in the context of the project. The website will be public, but it will have a confidential section to which only members of the consortium can access. Furthermore, this website will be updated during the whole project duration.

Communication Materials (other than the website)

Production of standardised, high quality printed material for dissemination purposes to be distributed at the conferences and other events, covering: brochures/leaflets, project information package and project posters as well as a video explaining project objectives and goals, to illustrate the scientific and practical benefits resulting straight from the outcomes of the project. These materials will be design a relased in M6, however updates and new materials will be produced throughout the whole duration of the project.

Completion of manufacturing of Reem-C. Report describing the humanoid robot platforms that will be available to the users of the open call.

Reem-C humanoid robot plus a report describing the humanoid robot platforms that will be available to the users of the open call.
