INDIGO Champions

"The success and sustainibility of INDIGO is on their shoulders"

In order to test its technologies, INDIGO uses an agile development method. The following “Champion” persons have been identified from each research community to lead different use cases. The Champions, and the teams behind them, assure that the community requirements are taken into account and that INDIGO solutions are of interest to the Research Communities that they represent.
