The main aim of the EST Preparatory Phase (PRE-EST), funded under the H2020 Framework, is to provide both the EST international consortium and the funding agencies with a detailed plan regarding the implementation of EST.

This will provide the information necessary for them to make decisions, addressing both organisational and technical issues as well as costs and risks analysis. Moreover, PRE-EST will lead the detailed design of EST key elements to the required level of definition and validation for their final implementation 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement number 739500.
