A major objective of flexWARE is the dissemination of all knowledge created within the project. To this end, a flexWARE Interest Group (FIG) has been established as an integral part of the project. Its function is to ascertain market expectations and requirements and broaden the project scope by having direct contact to and feed-back from potential users of the developed technology. Another purpose of the FIG is to serve as an advisory group to provide inputs on possible applications and user requirements on a European level. The FIG is intended to be an open group; potential members (industrial, academic, private) are welcome to join at any time during the project.

Why should a company or organization become a FIG member?
Your benefit joining the flexWARE Interest Group and answering the "FIG questionnaire" is that your needs and opinion will be considered within the flexWARE project. FIG members will have early access to the project results and will be involved in the review and discussion of the system requirements, specifications, implementation of the prototype platform, and the field test.

Membership types
Main function of the FIG is to ensure the alignment of the project with market needs. To achieve this goal, we propose you several levels of involvement.
