WP4 - Harmonisation of Formats and Standards

WP4 - Harmonisation of Formats and Standards deals with standardization and interoperability issues.

The lack of interoperability is often mentioned as one of the major causes of the fragmentation of the LR field and of the lack of massive deployment of resources. In the last decade, however, important new standardization initiatives have seen the light, but need to be pushed to a wider community of users.

This WP will address the issue by identifying success stories of interoperability as well as areas where standardization is still lagging behind.

By the investigation of the existent, the WP's main goal is to define a set of best strategies to put standards in place and make them operational.
