0.5.1 Project RISE Timeline

The first phase of project RISE was forming the partnerships among the organizations, establishing relationships with stakeholders, reviewing literature on the topic, and establishing a project infra-structure. After that, there were periodic touchpoints, full team meetings, the data-collection itself, syntheses, pre-design work, and further iterations of synthesis. The timeline for major project developments is in Fig.0.1. Activities like small team meetings, data analysis, and low level planning occurred frequently throughout the duration of the project.
