The industrial advisory board (IAB) of UP2DATE, comprised of industrial experts of different domains, met last Friday for the first time. In the meeting, which run virtually, the project coordinator gave an overview of UP2DATE and IAB members answered with their first impressions.

The IAB has a key role in the project for giving advice and feedback on the main decisions, strategies, and outcomes. This board will also contribute to the elaboration of a roadmap for future research and innovation activities. In addition, the IAB is a mechanism for bringing project results closer to industry. For this reason, the UP2DATE IAB is comprised of interdisciplinary experts from Aerospace (Orbital critical systems, AIRBUS, Raytheon Technologies), Automotive (Research Association for Automotive Technology (FAT)) and a Certification body (TÜV Rheinland) that complement the expertise of the project consortium.
After this first contact, the project coordinators and the IAB have agreed on the next actions and regular meetings to keep synchronised and work together towards the success of UP2DATE!
