Hello all, @melancon and I have been in touch with our project officer, Loretta Anania, as the Commission examines our proposed Grant Agreement. My impression is that only minor tweaks will be required. For now, we are asked to send an email with a couple of sentences explaining:
- Any redistribution of resources tasks
- Where is ethical aspects encountered during the project covered (eg in which deliverables and at what months)
I can do 1 and 2 myself in ten minutes. I am asking @markomanka to send me 3. Marco, in your answer please keep in mind the ethical assessment of the OpenCare proposal (here), where they did ask for a change. Actually, they way I understand the proposal they misunderstood your text, but we’ll still need to take on board what they are saying, even to contradict them. Can you send this to me by Friday 25th September EOB? Should be about 20mins of work.
A point of concern mentioned was gender balance: “almost all scientist are male”. This is mostly an issue with Bordeaux and EHFF. I noticed that the people actually doing the work in the City of Milano are not mentioned in the partner description. There are two councillors, then someone called Renato Galliani, but no mention of @Luciascopelliti, @Rossana_Torri or Seble Woldeghiorghis. I guess that’s not a dealbreaker, just mentioning it… I would have preferred to have the names of the real team in there. They would also have helped on gender balance.
