1.6 Research activities

1.6.1      Joint research - overall strategy

Though the domusBITae infrastructure and its modules will be developed –as mentioned above- by following analysis – design – testing implementation cycles, two main phases are envisaged for the development of the infrastructure as a whole. This will lead to the release of a first fully operational platform and a final version about one year after.

The joint research activities will be mainly concentrated between the achievement of the system specification (2nd milestone) and the release of the final version (7th milestone). The conclusion of the first development phase will correspond to the completion of the joint domusBITae system (5th milestone). This phase will be followed by a service period in which the first system version will be deeply tested and assessed. This assessment will enable a second development phase in which new specifications for the final system version will be agreed (WP 1.2 to 1.4, 6th milestone). Right after this final system specification the second phase of joint research will start (WP 3.1 to 3.5). The conclusion of modules and sub-modules will enable an step by step upgrading of the system in operation (WP 2.1 to 2.5). After full upgrade of the system (7th milestone) this will be supported as explained in the service activities section.
