The CIVILEX project will use an iterative Concept Development and Experimentation (CD&E) approach: a project structure in which Consortium partners develop, test and refine concepts and outputs in an iterative and incremental fashion. With every iteration, results and conclusions of the previous phase are incorporated into the working material and outputs are further matured.
In the CIVILEX project, this leads to gradual refinement of the OCP proposed concept solution throughout the project duration. Through multiple evaluation sessions, the results remain practically usable and rooted in the everyday practice of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) end users. Additionally, because all research and development work packages contribute to each iteration, a highly collaborative project atmosphere is created.
