The PortForward consortium met at Acciona in Madrid, Spain for the 2nd Project Management Meeting on February 12-14, 2019. The objective was to review the project’s work of the first seven months and lay the foundation for sucessfully completing its first year. Important progress to this end was made in three thematic working groups, bringing the consortium together to define the agenda for the project on implementing its planned use cases, its technical architecture and its approach to providing value-added through digital data.

The use case oriented approach of the project provided important guidelines to the partners for discussing synergies between individual cases and informing the underlying technical architecture for the prospective solutions.
