What is a "Priority Task" ?

Last updated: May 2024


A specific research and development work can be accepted by STC as a Priority Task (PT). A PT denotes short term (about one year) R&D activities involving one or a few contributing scientists with a total effort of 1 FTE at most.

The documentation of each Priority Task contains the general description of the project, together with its subtasks, details of each subtask (like status, targets and considerations, people involved etc), the FTEs allocation table and possible meeting details and conclusions.

In case you are submitting a proposal for a PT, download the PT proposal template.
