Main Discussions and Actions

On January 2014 Activity Report

On WP1 Activity:

  • The big news is that the amendment has been officially approved.
  • NEAFC contract: it seems that there is a request for a 5 years sustainability, however iMarine (as an entity) is not in a position to guarantee this while single partners, namely CNR, can do that.
    • the contract is between ERCIM and NEAFC;
    • an MoU can be set up to deal with the open issues, rather than modifying the contract.
    • ERCIM will be back on this;

On WP2 Activity:

  • There are many opportunities for disseminating iMarine results.
  • On EUDAT collaboration:
    • EUDAT is not publishing much information about their services, this is hidden if you are not a member of "the community". This was the motivation for the proposal, i.e. to have more details;
    • the collaboration give us the possibility to start better understanding each other;
    • as soon as more details will be available, the TD will mobilize the appropriate iMarine teams;

On WP3 Activity:

  • On Data and Sharing Policy Document:
    • what is the version under discussion? This will be managed by FAO;
    • from the project pov there is no action expected;
  • On Chimera Validation and VME-DB Validation:
    • is there any feedback that has to be disseminated to the rest of the consortium?
      • VME-DB is in a Google Doc;
      • Chimera is in Jira;
  • On IRD activity:
    • there is neither evidence nor communication with the rest of the consortium about the activity reported;

On WP4 Activity:

  • On ICRI iMarine event preparation:
    • People have been invited;
    • Eleni (NKUA) will circulate the name of the confirmed participants;
    • One of the problems is that the Agenda of the event is "empty";
    • Eleni (NKUA) will circulate the list of the speakers;
  • For the booth, Trust-IT will prepare the presentation;

On WP5 Activity:

  • How long will take the downtime:
    • the whole day of tomorrow is planned (few hours is for the update, more time is for verification);
  • Re the D4Science portal upgrade:
    • the same downtime applies for this portal also;

On WP6 Activity:

  • The TD highlights how the latest releases complete the picture and the integration between VREs, workspace, and social;
  • The MarineSearch VRE will be deployed tomorrow, right after the downtime;

On WP7 Activity:

  • a new release should be scheduled for the beginning of April;
    • the list of candidate components should be produced, including
      • TDM and Statistical Service;
