The implementation plan of FUPOL consists of eight work packages. The work packages are designed according to the classification of major tasks which are formed to lead the goals of the project.
A profound principle applied is the understanding of user needs as a source and driver of the innovation process, this is referred to as user-driven innovation. As it is appropriate for large scale integrating projects, FUPOL has a comprehensive “program” approach: including a coherent integrated set of activities dealing with a range of aspects and tackling multiple issues.
The FUPOL project is driven by achieving tangible research results, which can be used by the target community. The strategy aims at a comprehensive beyond-state-of-the-art pre-commercial solution consisting of a technology solution, training material as well as standard guidelines and models for urban policy domains.
