This document, Deliverable 4, presents the Final Report of the COMPETENT project. It provides a description of what COMPETENT is about, and its aims and objectives; summarises the work carried out in the project, and presents a synthesis, and critical review, of its results.
Drawing on these results, the main aim of this report is to set out a balanced appraisal of the deployment potential of COMPETENT, and an informed judgement of its likely commercial success. On this basis, a possible roll-out strategy and deployment plan is developed.
The Report is set out as follows:
Following this Introduction, Section 2 provides an overview of the project, including a resume of its original aims and objectives;
In Section 3, we describe how the project evolved, and the work carried out to implement these aims and objectives;
Section 4 focuses on the results of the project. This section firstly outlines the criteria used to monitor the project results and measure its success, and then reviews the performance of the project against these criteria;
In Section 5, we present an appraisal of the ‘deployment potential’ of COMPETENT, on basis of the results outlined in the preceding Section, and outline a ‘Deployment Action Plan’, which sets out our strategy for further exploitation and sustainability of project results.
