An important starting point in the development of a roadmap is the establishment of an overview of existing strategic documents. For Road4FAME, one of the most important strategic documents in this regard is the research agenda put forward by the ActionPlanT project. On October 1st 2013, members of the Road4FAME project met for a full-day workshop with members of the ActionPlanT project to discuss their research agenda in detail and to get their guidance for taking up the ActionPlanT results appropriately in Road4FAME.
The consortium is thankful for the strong support received from ActionPlanT coordinator Anirban Majumdar of SAP, Marc Soignet from Platte Consult, and Sonja Pajkovska-Goceva from Fraunhofer IPK. The ActionPlanT strategic research agenda will serve as a solid starting point for our roadmap development in Road4FAME and we look forward to continuing regular consultation with members of the ActionPlanT project by means of the Road4FAME Core Group.
