V2 Trials in final planning stages

A very important stage in the TARGET project is taking place this September. It is almost a year since the V1 Trials of the TARGET solutions and everyone is really looking to seeing the V2 developments put through their paces in the field. These upcoming Trials will be used to test, evaluate and showcase the V2 of the software and Training Contents developed during the project. The feedback we receive from the end users will take us to the final V3 of the solutions before the conclusion of the project at the end of October.

A lot of work has been completed by all the end users and the technical teams since the V1 Trials, so we are all excited to see the developments in action. There are six Trials, each one of which will be hosted during September by the project’s end user partners. We will report back on how the improvements are received, but you can see the full schedule below.
