A key aspect of FAST is the involvement of end-users during the design, development and validation of the service produced by FAST.
The key end-user groups include different sectors such as government agencies, SMEs and nongovernmental organizations. Long-term sustainability of the FAST service will rely on the active support of end-users and interested parties.
The involvement of end-users is organized as a yearly consultation process including different steps as next figure illustrates:
I am a potential end-user how can I get involved?
Initially FAST will work with a limited number of selected end-users to develop a robust scientific basis for the software. As the project develops we will begin to release demo versions and seek further consultation from a wider community. If you, or your organisation, are interested in hearing more about FAST and how our service develops or you have any suggestions we would love to hear from you!

The first demo release of MI-SAFE is planned for 2017. Shortly we will set up a code repository and would love to have you participate. If you are interested Contact Us.
