The work plan of NEPHRON+ has the following major phases:
Phase 1: System Design - An elaborated and complete system design will be developed based on user scenarios and on in-depth detailing of all medical and user requirements. It requires input from all expected users (incl. patients, clinicians) and from experts, resulting in a detailed requirements report and complete system design (WP2, WP3)
Phase 2: System engineering - Parallel development activities of all hardware and software parts will be performed within a system engineering approach. (WP 4, 5, 6 and 7)
Phase 3: System integration and prototyping (WP8).
Phase 4: Validation phase covering in-vitro and in-vivo tests (WP9)
With this approach and in order to accomplish its goals, the project is further decomposed into ten (10) manageable Work Packages (WPs).
