Light2CAT is a project designed over a total period of 3 years. The strategic work plan consists of 7 work packages (WP) gathering a series of major tasks which are designed to lead the goals of the project. They also contain important milestones which help to keep track of planned development activities as well as deliverables to update the EU about the project progress achieved within the three years. The WP structure is summarised in the following picture:
Light2CAT involves 4 RTD work packages (WP1 – WP4), one DEMO (WP5), one OTHER (WP6) and one MANAGEMENT (WP7). WP1 is focused on the developments of visible light sensitive TiO2 photocatalysts optimised for implementation in cementitious systems. Materials fulfilling preliminary requirements as specified in the work packages description below will be selected for further development in WP2 which is focused on the optimisation (stability, performance and surface deposition) of the photocatalyst/mortar systems. WP1 and WP2 extendedly overlap. This is designed to ensure enough time to redevelop photocatalytic systems in WP1 in the case results coming from WP2 do not meet the objectives set in this task (see WP2 description below). Photocatalysts selected at the end of WP2 will be scaled up in WP3 and prototypes of the large photocatalytic concrete structures to be used in the demonstration activities developed, prepared and optimised in WP4. By the end of WP4 all the RTD operations will be finished and the large scale demonstrations activities will begin in WP5. However, WP5 includes a task (Task5.1) which starts at the beginning of the project. This task involves the selection and characterisation of the outdoor sites and locations to be used in the demo activities. Task 5.1 can start at the beginning of the project because it does not depend on any RTD activities. Finally, WP6 and WP7 extend all through the project timeline. WP6 involves all the activities related to dissemination, tech transfer, IPR management and exploitation of the project results, while WP7, mainly engaging the project coordinator, deals with the overall project management.
