Guideline for DMF Process - Available for Public Download

Smartfusion are pleased to announce that a major output of WP1 - Guideline for DMF processes for transferability to other regions is now available for public download. 

The initial stakeholder analysis of Smartfusion was supported by the application of the Design and Monitoring Framework (DMF) methodology within Work Package 1 (WP1), which is an evolution of the Logical Framework Analysis. Both these methodologies have been used widely by NGOs, financing institutions such as the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, and the European Commission to reach consensus and create support for selected solutions through intensive stakeholder consultation.

Application of this methodology is a novelty in European Research projects within the Framework Program, however, and can be considered as an innovation in research project design in itself. The consortium applies the methodology to design the local Demonstrators and set up the project Monitoring Framework. The results consist of fully detailed Design and Monitoring Framework tables and a detailed design and specifications of the Demonstrators, including all relevant components such as the cargo to be transported, the vehicle to be used, the transport link where it will be applied, the innovations to be tested, who are responsible for the different components, etc.
