people > industrial advisory board

The project has formed an Industrial Advisory Board whose membership represents a cross-section of technology and service providers (see Table I below); regular meetings with the Board will help us in revising, where necessary, the objectives of the project.

The role of the Industrial Advisory Board will be to assist the Executive Board:

  • with evaluating the direction and progress of the Project;
  • with evaluation of the lessons learnt from our planned case studies, and assessment of their likely validity in other environments;
  • with the development of exploitation plans.

The first meeting with the IAB took place in Cambridge (UK) beginning of July 2003. In the following subsections the members of the MOBILEMAN IAB are presented, and their role in the project is introduced.
