The nearest airport is London Heathrow and the nearest train stations are either Didcot Parkway or Oxford which have good links to London.

The main purpose of the meeting is to plan forthcoming deliverables, especially where there are interdependencies among work packages. Work package leaders, please let me now if you would also like time for a work package meeting.
We need to have an agenda item on an issue that EMBL raised during the preparation of the CA. Two recent grants have had problems when a partner ceased trading, and the DESCA template that we used as a starting point has no provision for this. It would be prudent to form a joint understanding of how to deal with this. While many research organisations are robust institutions with a history of centuries, some H2020 partners are newer, including SMEs.
The agenda is below:
