Status of M36 deliverables

The full set of M36 deliverables was not finalised by 31 December, and so, following discussions in the PMB, the plan is to submit the full set to both the EC and the reviewers together, but well before the final deadline of 27 January.

D11.3 Report on a common vision of digital preservation: progress to Year 3

  • David had received feedback from several partners, including the internal review by John Lindström, and has incorporated it into the latest version on the wiki.
  • The intention is to obtain some feedback from the External Advisory Board before the review, though this will not delay submission of the deliverable.

D11.4 Virtual Centre of Excellence development: progress to Year 3

  • This has been internally reviewed by ESA, and some loose ends remain. David expects to complete it over the weekend.
  • A revised spreadsheet with "optimistic" and "pessimistic" figures will be included.
  • Andreas Hundsdörfer asked about the action from the All Hands Meeting in Den Haag to comment on the "business plan" to Ruben Riestra by 6 January. It was clarified that the business plan is present as part of D11.4.

D13.2 Report about standardisation activities: progress to Year 3

  • Andreas Hundsdörfer explained that the version put on the wiki before Christmas was not quite complete.
  • Internal review was done by Barbara Bazzanella.
  • There will probably be a new version this evening/tomorrow.
  • David said he had made some minor editorial changes to the version on the wiki so if possible this should be taken as the base for any further changes.
  • About the database itself, Holger explained that there is a MySQL dump but it needs checking; at the beginning of next week he expects to send it in the new schema and can discuss how to put on the website.

D22.3 Demonstrator set up and definition of added value services: Part 2

  • The final version is on the wiki.
  • David made some edits to the glossary in the deliverable, and is checking for consistency with the online glossary.

D31.1 Report on DRM preservation

  • This deliverable was already known to be delayed and is expected to be completed by mid-January.

D35.1 Exemplar good governance structures and data policies

  • Ready for submission on the wiki.

D41.2 Event planning and summary report – progress to Year 3

  • Ready for submission after minor editorial changes.

D43.2 Launch of digital preservation training portal for VCoE

  • David needs to add a few paragraphs on different options for costs/income with respect to the business plan.
  • There is also a need for classification of training material, and how the training pills fit.
  • There will be another loop with Gerald on this deliverable.

D44.4 Annual report on communication activities: progress to Year 3

  • Ready for submission.

Year 3 reporting procedure

Simon sent an email on 19 December explaining the Year 3 reporting procedure. He has created a wiki page at ApanThirdYearReporting.

The two orgent actions (needed for the draft periodic report) are:

ALL PARTNERS: provide effort figures (person-months) for Y3 per WP, either using the spreadsheet on the above wiki page, or by making sure the management website figures are up-to-date.

WP LEADERS: provide short reports on your WPs for Y3. A template for these reports is also on the wiki page.

Any other issues

Simon has received the annual request from the EC for reporting on patents, peer-reviewed articles and proceedings papers for 2013, and will ask partners for up-to-date information.

There was a discussion of D44.3 (interactive map) which was submitted over the summer. David argued for a consistent classification of stakeholders, and the possibility for an organisation to have multiple roles. This is an ongoing discussion within Stream 4.
