Main Discussions and Actions

On 9th TCom

The target location is Crete and will be hosted by FORTH.

The time constraints are:

  • FORTH can organise it for the last week of June, from 23rd on.
  • there is a potential clash with the iMarine Board ... today or tomorrow this will be fixed;
  • The TCom can be organised also in July, first two weeks;
  • A final decision will be taken by the end of this week, after having fixed the dates for the iMarine Board meeting;

Other constraints/positions (almost all partners are out of travel budget):

  • FAO has no possibility to phisically participate if the meeting is not organised in Rome;
  • NKUA has no possibility to participate if the meeting will be organised in Rome, even in Athens (e.g. because of strikes);
    • Crete is the most economic place;
  • for CNR (they consumed the travel budget) it is cheaper to participate in a meeting in Crete than in Rome;
