The overall SMART-map work is structured in eight workpackages.

Workpackage 1: Management

The first workpackage deals with the overall administration, management and coordination of SMART-map. It will run throughout the whole project and its tasks include reporting the activities’ results to the European Commission, organising the partners’ meetings  (kick-off, annual and final meetings) and managing the networking activities with other European projects.

The workpackage is led by the Aarhus University (DK).

Workpackage 2: Industrial Dialogues & Trainings

The main objective of the second workpackage is to raise awareness among the different stakeholders. This aim will be reached thorugh the production of a dialogue format to be employed in the industrial environment and the organisations of training workshops directed at the industrial stakeholders. The development of the industrial dialogue format will also include the engagement of the Advisory Board. The final release of the online format will be managed within this workpackage.

The workpackage leader is the Centre for Social Innovation (Vienna, AT).

Workpackage 3 – 5: Innovation topics in Synthetic Biology, Precision Medicine and 3D Printing

The objective of these three workpackages is the delivery of a smart map specific to each innovation topic. By using the format developed in Workpackage 2, six industrial dialogues will be organised. The final outcome will be the development of a smart maps drafts for each topic. The resulting drafts will be tested and implented until the delivery of the final smart maps.

Workpackage 3 aims to produce a synthetic biology smart map. The main partners involved are the University of Manchester (UK), the Manchester Metropolitan University (UK) and the Central Europe University (Budapest, HU).

Workpackage 4 focuses on Precision Medicine. The Aarhus University (DK) and the Insituto de  Medicina Genòmica (Valencia, ES) will pair up to perform the workpackage tasks.

Workpackage 5 is meant to build a smart map focussing on 3D printing in biomedicine; its tasks will be performed by Fondazione Giannino Bassetti (Milan, IT) and the Fraunhofer Institute (Berlin, DE).

Workpackage 6: Cross-Fertilisation and Trans-disciplinary foresight

This workpackage is dedicated to the cross-border and trans-disciplnary challenges that might emerge at the interface of the three innovation topics. One of the objectives of this workpackage is the production of an e-book that will collect audio and video materials on the industrial dialogues events.

The leader of this workpackage is Fondazione Giannino Bassetti (Milan, IT).

Workpackage 7: Formative and summative evaluation

The aim of this workpackage is to perform an evaluation of the different SMART-map activities to infer the benefits of the smart maps implementations. The workpackage will thus run all over the project and will lead to an overall evaluation of the project.

The workpackage leaders are the University of Manchester (UK) and the Manchester Metropolitan University (UK).

Workpackage 8: Storytelling and multiplying impact activities

The final workpackage’s objective is to develop a narrative for SMART-map. The main workpackage tasks will be the set-up of the storytelling for the project, the design of the visual identity, the development of a dissemination plan and a communication toolkit and the production of videos and audio material.

The workpackage leader is formicablu (Bologna, IT).
