    6. SGM Chairman and WG leaders for discussing 2006 plan and EBA organization,

    The application of 6 SGM is in line with what expected in the MoU and with the decision taken in the last MC in Zagreb, with the aim to better organize the work on specific topics and produce documents and reports that can then be presented and discussed within the network created by COST863. The topics here expected for the 6 SGMs have been emerged form the discussion carried out during the last WG meetings and were also considered as a priority in the last MC held in Zagreb. If approved, place and date of the SGMs will be better defined.


    Now were already approved 3 STSMs. Again, in line with the opinion of the MC to promote the exchange and scientific collaborations through STSMs, a new call will be opened with a larger budget availability (15000), but always for promoting high level scientific exchange. Stuart Gordon, vice chairman and responsible for the STSMs, has now some health problem, for this reason the new applications will be

    managed directly by the Action Chairman, Bruno Mezzetti, in collaboration with WG leaders for the evaluation. As soon as Stuart Gordon will be recovered he will keep managing the applications. STSMs applications can be submitted at any time and we will speed up the procedures so to have the exchanges within this year.
