STAR-FLOOD distinguishes 5 programme milestones. These Milestones are specific stages in the execution of the programme. Usually, the end of a Milestone will require the consortium bodies to make (mostly content-wise) decisions on how to proceed in the next Milestone. WP1, WP2 and WP5 each contribute to one Milestone, WP3 and WP4 contribute to two Milestones. Only WP6, WP7 and WP8 contribute to all milestones (since they run throughout the whole duration of the programme). A Milestone is finished when all deliverables connected to that Milestone have been approved by the EC. For a detailed overview of the links between Milestones and Deliverables, see the project management plan.
