Alan Brine and Rob Howe represented TIGER at today’s startup meeting.
Ale was there but was representing Leicester’s project Ostrich.
The sessions were really quick moving and covered a wide range of issues with many points raised for further investigation.
It was useful to meet staff from other projects and will be great to compare notes over the next year.
Most projects are having some fun recruiting quickly to all of their posts. Perhaps future calls could make successful announcements and funding available quicker – or perhaps there could be something institutions could do to clear recruitment hurdles quicker for short term projects ?
We really need to move forward on consortium agreement and institutional policy on OER release as this could cause delays.
Back to the project plan now for another tidy up prior to submission at the end of the month.
