Enabling the real-life testing and trial of DUNES methodology and technology on a broad geographical basis ("the large-scale experiment"), while learning from local differences and implementing the necessary adaptations, calls for the participation of companies/institutions and other "end users" that belong to different countries. In the present case, these are the German, Dutch, Swiss, Swedish, British and Israeli schools, professional training centers, companies and other frameworks included in the following table, which have formally agreed to participate in the DUNES project as non-partner "end-users". This is a partial list, though: many other entities (including schools, high-schools and universities), have expressed their wish to take part in the "experiment" and are joining the project as well.
