Review meeting February 2012

There are still no further feedback notes from the Review meeting available yet.

Review of notes from previous meeting

Review of actions

SL commented as follows:

1. A Doodle Poll has not yet been arranged for the next Face to Face meeting. 2. Veronika P-Z asked for summaries of WP's and for these to contain some highlights with accompanying slides. She would like to have something publishable as a summary, which makes the dissemination work much easier.


ALL WP Leaders to provide highlights within their summaries and accompanying slides.

Common Vision falls under WP11 - DG has set up a number of Wiki pages with outlines and initial ideas.


Everyone to contribute to this.

WP16 Common Tools - looking for a link to tools. This is a Month 14 deliverable and we need something urgently.


ALL - please add links to tools on the Wiki.

Administrative matters

The number of Form C's completed has increased but there are still some which have not yet been started.


ALL - Please finalise the figures on Form C and SL will adjust if necessary.

Effort reporting

Everyone should continue to update their effort each month.

Upcoming deliverables

SL advised that we will not be submitting the Month 14 deliverables until we see the Review Report and its recommendations. However, please do not delay completion of these but send them to SL and DG and they will be submitted in a group through the Coordinator.

  • D12.1 - The deliverable is the web site, which is now complete.

  • D13.1 - Hans Ulrich reported that there has been a slight delay as there has been quite a lot of additional material but this should be completed by the end of next week.

  • D14.1 - SL has some volunteers for the internal review and will also nominate people to do this. AH said that they will wait until the report from the reviewers before making any adjustments or progressing any further work.

  • D16.1 - Register of tools - we need more contributions

  • D24.2 - This has been postponed for a couple of weeks until mid March. VP-Z has been nominated as a reviewer for this.

  • D26.1 - This has been postponed for several months as agreed.

  • D33.1A - The final version is now available for internal review and SL offered to do this.

  • D33.1B - There will be a Skype call about finalising this deliverable so that it is ready for internal review.


DG will e-mail details of this call immediately after the meeting.

  • DP41.1 - This document has been through internal review and JL has received Eefke's comments and will now finalise the document.

  • D43.1 - Sharon submitted the assessment of training materials yesterday. This will be reviewed by SL and DG before final submission to the Project Officer.


SL 'opened the floor' to the WP leaders and those who wished to discuss their various WP's .

DG requested input on the Common Vision document as it is still rather thin,


ALL - Please put any ideas you have for Common Vision and the Virtual Centre of Excellence on the Wiki pages provided.

SM felt that the business plan does not seem to fit what we are are looking for. In Month 48 we have a deliverable to create a Virtual Centre of Excellence. In the text of the DOW we talk about intermediate deliverables of this vision. We took out all the intermediate deliverables and just left the official deliverable. Liina then asked for documents to be delivered. The question posed is "what is our vision of what the 'Virtual Centre of Excellence' would do?" SM feels it is premature to discuss what is sustainable and that we should just produce a 'skeleton' of what we expect it to be. SM strongly suggests that we remove everything in the second 2/3rds of the document and concentrate on what we think the VC of E should be. DG said that, in re-writing the DOW, there is a mixture of Common Vision and the Virtual Centre of Excellence. Questions were asked In the Review about providing more details, but we need to wait until we have the written feedback before commenting.

SM feels it would be best to concentrate on what the VC of E can be and how there is a balance between a small concentration o - Clearly this has to be financed - Clearly we have to work together - Where we need to offer services - We can then explain how to finance the people and services


DG will amend the document as soon as he receives the feedback and would be grateful to receive any other comments. Look at the PRESTO business plan.
