The ArtistDesign NoE implements a Joint Programme of Activities, composed of:
- Joint Programme of Integration Activities (JPIA)
including joint technical meetings, staff mobility and exchanges, sharing research tools and platforms, and an intranet-based communication structure.
These activities promote horizontal integration of geographically dispersed teams – each excellent in one or more topics -, and vertical and trans-disciplinary integration of traditionally separated topics. All these activities will have long-lasting effects, well beyond the duration of the initial EC funding.
- Joint Programme of Research Activities (JPRA)
promote excellence and integration via either the Thematic Cluster activities, or the Transversal Integration activites.
Integration may These activities are expected to move the state of the art forward, and have a real impact on work done in other teams, for both research and development.
- Joint Programme of Activities for Spreading Excellence (JPASE)
allow excellence to spread from the JPRA and JPIA activities, to the larger embedded systems community.
These usually take the form of workshops, schools, seminars, and publications (books, course materials, etc). Spreading excellence activities also allow the Artist2 partners to gain useful contacts and information from outside the NoE.
- Joint Programme of Management Activities (JPMA)
plan, organize, direct and monitor the integrated effort to efficiently achieve the technical objectives within the ArtistDesign constraints of time schedule and budget.
