Regarding compensation for participation in trials and other data gathering activities in Prosperity4All, there is a clear policy that volunteers can receive compensation for their time and effort during research and development activities. Once the schedule of the pilots is closed, it is necessary to estimate a compensation for users. This compensation can be of different type and value (i.e. cash, gift cards, tutorial attendances, etc.), and it will be fixed in advance depending on the budget available for this activity and the characteristics of the tasks to be performed by users (duration, difficulty, etc.).


Details of the compensation plans for the pilots will be given in D402.1 and D403.1.
