This work package 1 final report summarizes the results of the last year of EMANICS and overall documents the progress of the NoE wrt. integration, collaboration and visibility for the last four years. Thus, one focus of this deliverable is the illustration of EMANICS integration figures and research development. Following last year’s positive trend, we demonstrate the high quality of EMANICS events, the increased integration over the years and how collaboration between partners grew. This is enabled by the tools and activities of work package 1. The open call process executed at the beginning of the third period has led to the funding of five proposals to achieve the objectives of work package 1. Their results are described in greater detail in this deliverable. A map of research activities among EMANICS partners and world-wide has been maintained that provides information about PhD theses, topics of interests of workshops and conferences, and keywords of published papers. The EMANICS common course program has been extended by, first, new teaching material about service management has been developed.
