3 ECOC 2006 — 3 MUSE Overall Objective Multi service access network that provides  secure connectivity between end-user terminals and edge  in a multi-provider environment  at a low cost for every European citizen.

7 ECOC 2006 — 7 Quarterly consortium meetings SP and TF meetings collocated 120 Attendees Plenary + up to 8 parallel sessions

9 ECOC 2006 — 9 Standardisation  Why in an integrated project ? Project objective: Interoperability, economies of scale Feedback to research (realism) Motivation to aim at consensus with real company positions  Focus on selected bodies with sufficient critical mass IP should not create a new forum that competes with existing initiatives  Co-signed contributions

10 ECOC 2006 — 10 Dissemination  MUSE public website:  Public Newsletter  MUSE Summer School  Papers in journals, conferences, workshops  Public demos Summer School – Autumn School IP has sufficient critical mass for effective dissimination Focus on a few existing events

11 ECOC 2006 — 11 Some lessons learned  Each partner should choose priority and focus resources Scope of IP is broad - every partner wants to be involved everywhere Total budget is large, but resources per partner are limited Minimum resources and justification per deliverable/per partner  Decisions Aim at consensus Proceed with majority if not possible  SP Confidential Deliverables Stimulate innovation among competitors IP Consortium Agreement stipulates access rights to IPR Public version (e.g. requirements, performance results)  Quality process Independent internal review of deliverables Assessment of partners with corrective actions in budget

12 ECOC 2006 — 12 Summary  Pros of integrated project Suited for research in multi-disciplinary field Suited for consensus and pre-standardisation work Good for consensus building, standardisation inputs Good network and exchange of info among research in same field Flexible adaptation of activities in fast changing environment within frame of objectives Powerful for dissemination  Cons of integrated project Overhead for management (but 100% funded) Overhead for all partners to stay up to date with all information Slow consensus and decisions Presence of competitors (but reasonably solved in Subprojects)
