Review of notes from previous meeting

SL asked everyone to fill in the Wiki for meeting on the 19-21 June and the attendance at the dinner on the 19 June.

Review of Actions

Veronika P-Z has now been asking for some time for slides for the introductory presentation. VP-Z confirmed that the deadline was 15 May but has only had about half of the WP materials she needs. She needs to have this completed by the end of the month.


ALL - WP leaders need to send slides and text for each WP demonstrating the objectives of the work package and indicate when their WP will start.

Administrative matters

Form C's - SL has advised that one or two people need to make some changes but intends to submit the forms by the end of today/tomorrow. Many of the explanations on the Form C's were strengthened but it is hoped this will lead to less queries from the EC.

Effort Reporting Please continue to fill in your effort.

SL reported in the absence of WK and confirmed that we have now submitted our deliverables up to and including Month 14.
