Presentation of Interedition at COST

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

On September 19th we presented the Interedition initiative to the Executive Group for the COST Domain of Individuals, Societies, Culture and Health. We do like to think it was a success. The committee members were clearly very knowledgeable about the content of our proposal and had taken it in with great interest, they seemed to show considerable enthusiasm. We think we answered there questions, which were accurate and to the point, to their satisfaction.

We understand that we now have made it into the last round, were just 6 of a total of 411 projects are invited to make a case for themselves. Of the these 6 probably 3 or 4 will receive funding. So, our chances have now risen to a tantalizing 50% at the least. Let´s keep our fingers crossed a little while longer.

In mid October we´ll receive a first indication. By mid November a final decision will be communicated.

The powerpoint presentation is amended to this post.

Interedition invited to present COST proposal

Friday, September 7th, 2007

On September 5 we received notification of the COST office that Interedition will be allowed to present itself as a proposed Action to the Executive Group of the Domain of Individuals, Societies, Cultures and Health at COST/ESF. We will prepare a presentation and will be presenting the proposal on September 19th in Brussels at the COST Office. So, it seems we reached the last hurdle in getting our initiative some funding for starting an international cooperation. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
