Project structure

TAIPI will assess the impacts of HBP and Graphene, enhance the flow of information from the Flagships towards policy makers, relevant stakeholders and wider public, improve the understanding of the impacts of the Flagships on science, technology, economy and society and contribute to create a stable and structured environment for the benefit of the FET Flagships.The environment created by TAIPI will thus benefit to the Flagships, allowing them to concentrate on the fields wherethey bring the highest added value to their stakeholders while they rely on up-to-date tools, developed by TAIPI, to monitor in real time their impacts.

TAIPI is composed of 5 interdependent work packages:

Covers the overall coordination activities of the project. It will allow the implementation of the project activities in terms of quality, timing and efficiency. It is linked to all other work packages with particular monitoring activities.

Set up of a methodology and toolkit for TAIPI’s two different and complementary action lines: impact assessment and support to policy makers. After TAIPI’s first 12 months the most suitable methodology for the subsequent activities will be established and afterwards applied to WP3 and WP4.

Impact Assessment
On the base of the robust methodological main frame and toolkit developed during WP2, the toolkit is now differentiated in order to adapt respectively to HBP and Graphene impact assessment. The assessments are performed in a collaborative way with both Flagships. The results are then reviewed and synthetized, and the methodological main frame adapted if necessary.

Support to policy making
Major Flagship results to policy makers, as well as impact assessment results will be communicated on the basis of IA results and in collaboration with Flagships. TAIPI will produce recommendations for policy makers related to the Flagship scheme, thus supporting policy making and enhancing the information flow to policy makers.

Dissemination and communication
Ensuring a continuous communication as well as targeted dissemination of the TAIPI activities and outputs. Information and analytical material prepared under previous work packages will be further disseminated. Additionally, the transfer of the toolkits to the Flagships, after transformation of these toolkits into easy-to-use dashboards, will be performed under close cooperation with the Flagships, FLAG-ERA and the EC.

As shown in the graphical presentation below, the TAIPI project structure comprises five supporting work packages which are interlinked through well defined interfaces:
