FOT-Net seminar: FESTA and impact analysis for CIP pilot projects (Barcelona, 4-5 April 2013)

Date: 4 – 5 April 2013

Venue: Hotel Porta Fira, Barcelona.



This additional seminar within the FOT-Net programme on the subject of “FESTA and Impact Analysis for CIP projects” has been arranged to  provide an opportunity for those active in FOTs (Field Operational Tests) and in the CIP(Competitive and Innovation Framework Programme) pilot projects to come together to see how each other are handling the issue of ‘Impact Analysis’ – and through this, identify transferable best practice.

It will provide a platform for delegate to receive progress updates on the CIP pilots and importantly, provide the forum for an examination of the current FESTA methodology and its applicability in impact assessment. It will also of course provide a valuable opportunity for networking across the various projects. We look forward to seeing you there.
