PERFORMANCE stands both for the name and the subject of an Integrated Project within the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The project aims at module measurement and calibration, system performance evaluation, device and system modelling, module service life assessment and the special case of building integrated PV modules. Current technologies are covered as well as new and advanced cell and module concepts. The project commenced in January 2006 and will end in December 2009, its consortium consists of 28 partners representing industrial and research organisations from all over Europe. During its lifetime, PERFORMANCE had to face different problems and challenges. These included changes in the management and in the project consortium as well as changing prioritization of work in some of the groups involved in the work programme. However, these obstacles have been overcome towards the end of the project duration. Having a look at management issues, this contribution is not a scientific summary of PERFORMANCE, but rather a personal review on the challenges of an Integrated Project.
