The Stakeholder & Validation Team will bridge the gap to countries and stakeholder groups that are not actively involved in the research work of RESCUE. By means of this, the Stakeholder & Validation Team is an important element to ensure that RESCUE will be researching along the substantial requirements of potential end users. It will include representatives from all stakeholder groups. Regulators, financiers, investors, developers, consultants and service providers who are not member of the consortium and who do not necessarily come from one of the participating countries will be established as a specific project component.

The role of the Stakeholder & Validation Team is to monitor and review the work and the progress of work of all other project components. In liaison with the Steering Committee the team will monitor the progress of the project, verify the usefulness of the deliverables and recommend future project activities – also regarding possible reorientation according to the requirements of potential end users. In this general context the Stakeholder % Validation Team is a major element of external quality control of RESCUE. The Stakeholder & Validation Team will be constituted by the end of October 2002.
