During the first phase, the MINnD research programme focused on problems identified as covering several processes, in order to create a base for discussion during the subsequent phases. These subsequent phases will in turn draw on other representative practical cases of the problems not dealt with during phase 1.

The phase 1 programme was therefore structured around six theoretical use cases (UC). The resulting work will feed into the discussions on theme 1 (Analysing uses), theme 2 (Experimentation) and theme 3 (Information structure)
