Project flyer available 

The myEcoCost team has produced a project flyer. It summarises what myEcoCost is about, how the myEcoCost system is envisaged to work, the project objectives, expected benefits and the project structure. The flyer will be distributed by the team members in major events, but you can get your own copy from the project documents area in our website. The direct download link is here.


Progress within the project

The whole myEcoCost consortium has come together to discuss progress and plan next steps in two progress meetings, held in February and in June. Up to now, the collaborative work of the team has enabled finalising the “myEcoCost Application Scenarios and Service Requirements” report, of which a summary can be found here.
Over 100 requirements have been identified and form the basis of the functional system architecture currently being defined and of the first specification activities. 


myEcoCost invited to Chinese and British Universities

Professor Daizhong Su of Nottingham Trent University, a member of myEcoCost project consortium, delivered two invited lectures this year, one was at Derby University, UK on 20th February, and the other was at Harbin Engineering University, China, on 26th March. Both lectures were in the area of sustainable product design, and myEcoCost project was a major theme. The lectures were welcomed by the audience. The lectures not only publicised the project, but also enabled the audience to understand the latest research in the subject area conducted by the international collaborative team with the support of the European Commission.
