It includes information on all participants, shared documents and images, our SMARTER flyer, logo, and other corporate identity elements.

This Extranet is exclusively accessible for SMARTER participants, and requires registration. Please contact the webmaster to create an account.

When creating your account, do not use nick names, but use a combination of your real first name + last name as user name, so we know who is posting what.
