Inclusion into the consortium:
Once an SME is selected to perform the proposed experiment, it will be contracted by the project coordinator (iMinds) as subcontractor. This implies that the administrative load for the applicant will be minimal as only an invoice needs to be submitted to iMinds at the end of the experiment with a description of tasks performed and results achieved as well as an evaluation on the use of the federated testbeds and its tools. This final report will be required before payment will be carried out.
