REPORT ON THE RSG, THEIR ROLE AND POTENTIAL
One of the WPT-1 main outputs is the definition of the Regional Stakeholder Groups (RSG), the role of which is to accompany the smart transition in the Test Areas. The definition of the RSG is necessary in order to assist the assessment of the level of smartness of each Test Area, give input for best practices and test the digital exchange platform (DEP), codesign the toolbox and facilitate the transfer of project results to the policy level. The selection of the stakeholders depends on the issue in which each Test Area is set to be working, thus the aims of each Test Areas need to be clearly defined.
