The ECOCHAMPS project has started on the 1st of May 2015 and activities are underway. To assure the success of the project and a wide acceptance of its findings and results, an Advisory Board was established, compiled of esteemed automotive experts. The purpose of the Advisory Board is to provide feedback on intermediate results, project direction and to provide input about relevant international technical, political and strategic developments.
During the first Advisory Board meeting (May 2016) the focus was on the results achieved so far and ways to measure and maximise the project’s impact and exploitation. All work packages presented their results and progress so far. Many discussions took place and helpful suggestions were made by the Advisory Board members, that will benefit the project in the future.
