Centre of Excellence launch event 22-23 October in Brussels: final preparation

Simon reported that the number of registrations for the event is still rising, even at this late stage. The Project Officer is going to attend, and indeed will be giving a talk on "EU-funded digital preservation research". The final programme is available at

Management update

Regarding the third year cost claim, STFC is awaiting payment from the EC. There are no further obstacles to payment.

The PMB has been in discussion with the Project Officer about a date for the final review. It is proving difficult to find a suitable date given constraints on availability. It is expected that only a small team from the project will need to attend.
