1.iMarine Success Story: Preparation and submission of iMarine Success Story for the March e-Concertation Meeting "iMarine - Cool tools and high level experts for fisheries management and knowledge" http://bscw.research-infrastructures.eu/bscw/bscw.cgi/d276673/iMarine_SuccessStory_e-ConcertationMeeting_March2013.docx

2. Training Activities:

CNR: Comments on the training content: we should make available different training packages (on data analysis suite, on applications, on VRE management/demonstration, on how to port your own application)

FAO: Comments on the training content: we miss content to cover the Biodiversity and the semantic topics.

CNR: Comments on ICIS Training videos:

- Demo with no voice – Comments: too long, it is better to add the voice over - Hands-on video: bad quality – re-do the video once the new Gateway features are published / To avoid to mention the production of future modules. All the videos should be stand-alone ones.

FAO comment on training videos: The demo is too high level, too general and the hands-on is too technical. The feeling is that we miss a different kind of training that can be used to train data managers, something that explains the concrete benefits for regional fisheries organisations (this is a feedback from the last FIRMS event held in FAO at the beginning of February)

ALL: Agreement on the production of 2 different kind of video for each application: a short demo video with voice over (TRUST) + an hands-on video (CNR/FAO). The video will be produced after the publication of the new Gateway interface (20 Feb 2013)

  • iMarine overall video – OK for publication

ACTION1: CNR to reorganize the page identifying the training content to be produced in the next weeks

ACTION2: TRUST to publish the iMarine overall video

3. February iMarine newsletter

TRUST proposal: Given the success of AppliFish and the increase of 20% of the newsletter registered members we should exploit AppliFish to keep high the attention on iMarine. We will try to explain AppliFish features to the big public i.e. What are distribution maps? Why are they useful? Etc. And to give a technical and policy perspective to highlight the iMarine work.

February newsletter:

  • Learn how to read AppliFish – What are the distribution Maps?

What’s the added value of distribution maps?

What’s the technological issue behind distribution maps?

  • Announcement of the next March iMarine Board & Publication of the last report

ACTION3: TRUST to create the newsletter ACTION4: FAO to send to Sara the latest report of the Board

4. iMarine event:

Updates from CNR: Contacted the EC for the event venue. The available venue is too small (20 pax). CNR will contact again the EC asking for a bigger room. The agreement is to have 1 day meeting over 2 days. ACTION5: Donatella to contact again the PO.

5. AppliFish:

  • 11 Feb 2013 Call between FAO & TRUST report:
