    FLEXCoop research project action list 

      The FLEXCoop H2020 project is structured in Work Packages (WP) and in Tasks. For each Work Package, one of our partner is responsible for coordinating the set of Tasks among the rest of the group. This responsible partner is the WP leader. The Project Coordinator is in charge of coordinating the overall project.

    • Work Packages

      The FLEXCoop project is made out of eight Work Packages, you can see below the tasks included in each of them
