- Participate in project definition of requirements, use cases, benchmarks, and architecture
- Participate in validation, dissemination, and exploitation of the project
- BRL will advise the consortium regarding developments which can demonstrate clear compliance with applicable Good Laboratory Practice / Good Clinical Practice / Good Manufacturing Practice and ensure that the products will be consistent with ISO and other regulations (both national and European).
- BRL will direct the exploitation plans and activities
- BRL will conduct a market survey regarding the use of the patches and build a business case and exploitation strategy for the developed product.
- This will link with involvement in WP6, the Validation and Evaluation work package, which includes both health technology assessment and cost-benefit analysis.
Based on the above, BRL will collaborate with the manufacturing and industrial partners to lead the design plans for mass production, which will feed into the exploitation planning.
