Every project needs it partners to meet-up occasionally to facilitate a fuller exchange of opinion, experience and learning that benefits the project.The PULSE team is fully aware of this. This time the consortium partners gathered in Madrid (Spain) on 18 and 19 May 2017 at the premises of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

During the meeting, PULSE project partners discussed the state of play with the initiatives in place, particularly focusing on the technological development and the models design as envisaged in the project lifespan.

During the meeting, the use cases and architecture overview of the diabetes and asthma model were reviewed to better adjust them to the objectives of PULSE. In this frameworks, there was a discussion on the key importance of temporal and spatial resolution of each data item for the WebGIS and technical partners discuss on the rest of the technical components of the architecture offline and in the framework of the defined working groups during the upcoming weeks.

It was proposed to develop one general solution and deploy five, customised in each city.

Focusing on the test beds, it was proposed to use unique set of specs, the project would develop one complex PULSE architecture and would deploy one (tailored) configuration in each city, including the development of one WebGIS, with a common set of functionalities, although different layers could be configured per city.

The data for the WebGIS should stay in a single repository.

Coordination of the work is overall very challenging, but the enthusiasm and the positivity of all the partners are undoubtedly overwhelming. And you know why? Because there are some other cool PULSE events soon to be promoted, and other cities will have opportunities to learn on PULSE developments to nurture their ambitions!
