3rd Periodic Meeting in Kassel

On December 11th and 12th, all the partners of the BaaS project, funded by the European Commission through the 7th Framework Programme, met to have the 3rd Periodic meeting, organized by Fraunhofer and CARTIF. The meeting took place in the building that Fraunhofer has in Kassel (Germany).

During the meeting, a work package (WP) overview regarding the work already done during the 8 months of the project, before the milestones 1 and 2, and the work to be done in the following months, after the milestone 2, was presented. During these presentations, many questions regarding technical tasks were discussed in order to achieve agreements in the development of the project. Also, a visit to the test-bed building (Fraunhofer) was organized, so as to see the status of the facilities.


It was a two days meeting, where all partners were represented.

After a short welcome of Miguel Angel García, in the name of CARTIF, he gave an overview of the objectives and challenges of this 3rd Periodic Meeting: to present what have been done during months before milestones 1 and 2, and what should be done as next steps (until milestone 3).

Then, each WP Leader presented the work developed in his/her WP in more detail, indicating the deliverables submitted or under generation, and the partners participating in the active tasks with their correspondent responsibilities.

After that, the second day, each leader made a review of the new work to be done from milestone 2 – month 8.

During both presentations, the one showing the work done and the one presenting the new work, there was an open debate to discuss different approaches, to identify interactions with other WPs and solve some doubts.
