The FESTA Support Action Questionnaire to collect stakeholders' needs and indications on Field
Operational Tests was a part of FESTA Task T6.1 – Analysis of the different stakeholders and their
needs, relevant aspects and requirements on different level of FOT deployment.
The questionnaire question sets were designed in cooperation between VTT and CRF during
November-December 2007. The survey was performed by VTT through a web survey tool
“SurveyMonkey”, which serves several purposes: e.g. designing surveys, collecting responses,
sending invitations and reminders and downloading or analysing the results.
The web survey was opened on 13th December 2007, right after the FESTA Stakeholder Workshop
in Brussels. The opening of the survey was announced to the target group members by an email
invitation which included an individual hyperlink to the survey. The recipient list for the invitation
was mostly based on the Stakeholder Workshop attendance list that was supplemented by CRF
and VTT with the other known FOT stakeholders. Two reminder email rounds were sent out to
those who had received an invitation to the survey but had not responded – the first one on 21st
December 2007 and the final one on 10th January 2008. The survey was closed on 24th January
The results reported are synthesised from the answers given by the respondents on the questions,
which are given in Appendix 1. Next to the presentation of the results, some conclusions are
