USM will support the Project in different ways, at the technical level one pendulum will be settled at the University, and the gathered data will feed the common plaform and provide data to all users from a new latitude. With the close support of the physics department teachers that will be trained will develop interactions with it’s students, on a first phase, teaching them to use the data from the Pendulum data and on the second phase, teaching the students to assemble smaller penduluns, that they can use by themselves.

At the management level, USM will be responsible for the Quality Plan Work package, monitoring the project development and outputs quality closely.
