Follow-up from APA conference/Centre of Excellence launch event

Simon thanked all the participants, particularly those who gave presentations, and Krystina Giaretta for organising the event.

To finalise the planning for the Centre of Excellence, and following up the General Assembly meeting in Amsterdam, the MegaMeeting on Thursday 13 November will be devoted to options for the Centre of Excellence, taking account of the changed landscape, what is realistic, partners' intentions etc. Simon will announce this meeting by email.

Management update

The date of the final review is now confirmed, 4-5 March (two half days) in Luxembourg. The reviewers will be the same three as before. It is currently expected that only members of the Project Management Board will need to attend.

Simon had just sent a series of emails about the final reporting. In essence:

  • how to avoid problems with the final cost claims;
  • a request for (estimated) person-months and costs for the fourth year;
  • a request for contributions to the fourth periodic report and (separate) final report.

Remaining activities of Tiger Teams

The remaining activities are now mostly focussed on completion of the deliverables, so there was not much to add. Gerald reported that the Online Training Portal is now up and running and there is a roadmap to the end of the year for adding content. David said there are a number of training modules to finish and add to the OTP.

Any other issues
