SL will email that the Form C's have been submitted and we will chase organisations better next year.

Urgent deliverables (by 1st September)

D44.1 Communications plan

Need 2 rows for success indicators: we will justify numbers based on previous performances:
  • Web site visitors - SL/DG contacting similar websites
  • scientific publications - VP-Z will contact other NOEs or look at web sites

D44.2(i) Annual report on communication activities

Last checks needed to see if anything has been omitted.

D46.1(i) International liaison communication report

DG awaiting more detailed info from BL

Further steps with the Commission

  • awaiting any further feedback from PO on Y2+ plan (content and how to present it)
  • SL will create draft V2 of DoW by putting info from Y2+ plan into DoW
    • this will be further refined, especially further details for the rest of year 3 and 4
    • it seems clear the PO wants DoW revision completed by end of year.
  • we also need to continue less formal communications with PO to ensure that the APARSEN view of the DoW is understood and accepted

Formal procedure for acceptance of changes to the DoW (email from Ruben 28.08.)

PO has said "The formalities are not complicated or time consuming."

How to improve project management (responsibility and roles of WP leaders and make them aware of)

  • ACTION SL/JB will prepare an initial draft of WP leads' responsibilities
  • ACTION DG put Red/Amber/Green traffic lights on front page of wiki
  • ACTION SL to put wiki version of Y2+ plan on wiki with space for comments

How to deal with the minutes of the last GA meeting as they do not reflect our decisions correctly
