Toolbox

All parts of the work will provide input to the ATHLETE Online Toolbox on this page. This will ensure that data and tools will not only be developed and used within the project, but will be accessible to researchers and policy makers long after the project has finished.

The figure on the right shows the contributions of each Work Packages (WP) to the online toolbox.
