4 MED-DESIRE 3 rd TSC/SC Meeting - March 31 - April 1 Financial training for MPC Partners - March 31 (Afternoon) As the first financial reporting (Interim Report) approaching, the LB decided to organize a specific meeting sessions devoted to check and revise the detailed budget planning per WP and budget heading and the expenses justification documentation produced by the partners. A brief presentation will introduce the meeting session after which the partners will perform their budget planning and financial reporting exercises in parallel, with the continuous assistance of the LB staff. The meeting is dedicated to the MPC partners, due to the different organizational procedures and accounting procedures, but any interested partner is welcomed to participate. Technical and Scientific Committee Meeting - April 1 One of the main goals of this 3 rd TSC Meeting is that of jointly planning the country specific actions that must be implemented in WP5 and WP6 (mostly training, capacity building, stakeholders involvement, elaboration/adaptation of financial instruments and solar ordinances). In order to maximize the meeting effectiveness, two one-hour-and-a-half slots are dedicated to WP5 and WP6, each one made up by a 20 min. introduction by the WP Leader, 60 min. discussion and 10 min. wrap up. Concerning WP4, already concluded, we expect that all partners will have a thorough knowledge of the produced deliverable reports, so the TSC Meeting will be the occasion for discussing about the possible valorisation of the WP results; a 60 min. slot is devoted to that. A specific space is also envisaged for the WP1 management and coordination issues, the communication plan status of implementation of WP2 and the WP3 capitalization issues. Steering Committee Meeting - April 1 The SC Meeting will de devoted to analyse the project action plan for the next two years, in front of the level of expenditures consolidated in the first year, the budget change needs expressed by the partners and the possible need to better tune/define some activities. A first proposal of project re-planning (both activities and budget) will be presented by the Coordinator, in view of a discussion that will develop in the following months and possibly conclude before the first Interim report preparation.
