Join our Slack Team

When we speak of continuing the consortium post-funding aren’t we talking about both sustainability and durability?

Durability – the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage
Sustainability – the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level

We must have an open and frank discussion about this topic. Define what it means for the consortium to be sustainable/durable.
What are the goals for this continued effort?
