PwG_1: Deliverables

The first phase of the Looking Up! is the prototyping of the entire platform. Translated into more practical language, this means that we have to deliver specific elements, tangible and intangible, which are to work together as envisaged in the programme.

The purpose of the prototype is to give us a practical demonstration how the platform works, as well as to give us the experience necessary to get the ‘production’ version up and running.

A properly functioning prototype will also make it easier for us to raise funds for stage two – implementation.

Planned duration of work on the prototype: 6-8 months from the programme launch (1 February 2024)
