The research programs organize activities as projects, operational with specified goals, resources and timing. There will typically be several projects of different size running in parallel within each program. Each project will address important challenges, and will incorporate a multidisciplinary system perspective as well as more specific research topics. All projects will aim at achieving demonstrations in some way (physical or virtual), and will be presented in a holistic context. In the figure below, the organization of tentative projects in the four research programs is represented. The figure also indicates the build-up over time of ITRL activities, starting with a few projects in three of the research programs and growing to a full set of activities. The details and definition of projects will be established in later stages, but early project outlines are appended to this initial plan.
