Are you interested in providing feedback on the progress made by EU-funded projects that deal with emerging technologies in the public sector? Then you may want to participate in the Open Public Review (OPR). By reviewing and scoring project deliverables and initial results, you can provide valuable feedback to the project coordinators on initial objectives, future impact and potential.
What’s your action plan? If you are planning to run the marathon or just go for a walk, chances are that your approach is completely different.
We want to give you some ideas on how to increase your outreach and learn from successful EU-funded projects.
