LASHARE Steering Committee to approve initialisation reports in Amsterdam

LASHARE conducts 14 assessments on laser-based equipment in which some technology demonstrated at laboratory level is advanced towards a prototype with technology readiness level (TRL) seven or eight. In the first phase of the Laser-based Equipment Assessments (LEAs), aims and requirements of the supplier and users are agreed in order to decide about activities which are required to advance in TRL. The results of this phase are filed as initialisation reports which are reviewed by the LASHARE Steering Committee. From 02.-03.04.2014, the members of the committee find together in a face to face meeting to discuss and approve the planning of the LEAs.
