Newsletter vol. 9

Issue No. 9

Dear Reader,

welcome to the ninth edition of the TOOP newsletter! I hope this newsletter finds you well and healthy. The last months and especially the last weeks were very unusual and causes some changes to our lives. The outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe has also an impact on the TOOP project but the Management Board, the beneficiaries and all project members doing their best to limit the impact and to continue the regular work.
In February, the European Commission approved the extension into time until the end of September 2020. This extra time will ensure the opportunity for the piloting countries to implement the updated TOOP technical solutions
Furthermore, we continue close cooperation with the European Commission, CEF Digital Preparatory Action to ensure the sustainability of the TOOP assets and support the development of the OOP technical architecture. Besides that, the work on the sustainability plans for the outcomes of the TOOP project reached its next stage and will be in the focus of the project members until the end of the project. Additionally, we are happy to announce the first major release of 2020, indicated as TOOP Solution Architecture v2.0, is issued.
In this newsletter, you can also read further details about the ongoing piloting activities and the foreseen final event. Keep an eye on our social media channels for news on the testing progress and sustainability plans. We thank you for your support and wish you an interesting read!
We wish you a safe time and stay healthy,

Prof. Robert Krimmer
TOOP Project Coordinator
