About Work Package 1
WP1 is Polifonia’s validation work package. Its  goal  is  twofold:  1)  to  demonstrate  that  the  methods  and tools developed in the “technology provider” work packages (WP2-5) are effective in facilitating management of large musical heritage collections and supporting enhanced understanding, preservation of, and interaction with, musical heritage, 2) to contribute to push the state of the art in relevant, though specific, musical heritage use cases. WP1 tasks include: creating a socio-technical roadmap to all partners ensuring supervision for the co-creation process, providing a Technical Board supervising the development; delivering a Web portal / registry and associated services, and developing 10 pilots that form the core of our project.
