The meeting also addressed the planning of the first deliverables focused on analysing and modelling of medical device architectures and infrastructures, threat vulnerability risk analysis methods, as well as describing and prioritising the detailed industrial requirements from industrial devices and care providing organisations that will drive the research and development in the project that will be carried out over the next three years.
