On the 10th June 2014 the SALUS partners met at the University of Ljubljana to attend a work package 2 workshop. Work Package 2 is all about developing the use cases and end user requirements from which the technological solutions will be based.
During the workshop the partners reviewed each of the 3 storyboards that cover the scenarios; City Security, Temporary Protection and Disaster Recovery. A plan detailing the final deliverables was also shared and reviewed. Contained in the plan are the activities necessary to deliver the finalised use cases and requirements, these activities include engaging with end users and allowing them the opportunity to also input into the work package.
Work Package lead Andy Nyanyo of Airwave Solutions would like to thank all partners for their contribution to a very productive workshop.
