The EPOS IP Board of National Scientific Representatives (BNSR) will meet for the second time in Athens (Greece) the 6th and the 7th June 2017 at the Novotel Athenes. The meeting will take place right before the EPOS Board of Governmental Representatives (BGR) meeting.
The main goal of the meeting is to discuss the TCS-ICS Validation methodology, criteria and timeline that the EPOS Project Development Board (PDB) and EPOS Service Coordination Board (SCB) have finalized and that the BGR has to approve.
The validation process is aimed at identifying the Data, Data-products, Services and Software (DDSS) elements that will enter into the pre-operation and testing phase in fall 2018.
Validation involves technical, legal, governance and financial eligibility. The EPOS PDB, SCB and IPC have already discussed the methodology and the criteria.The validation process will last one year: October 2017 – September 2018.
Three validation checkpoints have been proposed: October 2017 (launching validation), February 2018 (intermediate validation) and September 2018 (closing validation).
