The HEADS consortium includes 5 independent organisations from 4 different countries, and is made up of 2 research partners, 1 Technology partner and 2 User case partners. The consortium has been carefully selected to provide the multidisciplinary competences required to develop the HEADS approach and different application domains to ensure the relevance and impact of the project results. The consortium is very international and only includes organizations which expertise is internationally recognized. Each partner has a distinct and complementary role to play in the project. This is summarised in the table below.
