MESA has undertaken a comparison of the technology status, on the scientific and implementation point of view, with future foreseen needs, and has carried out a gap analysis.
On the basis of these reviews, proposals for the updating of the Waterborne TP strategic documents have been produced, along the following lines:
- Definition of strategic goals and vision in the technology area in long, medium and short term – Technology Goals;
- Identification of technology gaps by comparing the State of the Art against the Technology Goals – Technology Gaps;
- Identification of RDI needs in long, medium and short term based on the Technology Gap Analysis – RDI Needs;
- Development of an Implementation Plan for the RDI Needs as an input to the WATERBORNE documents, including a prioritization and proposals for the implementation in different funding schemes – Implementation Plan.
