  • Aligning on the initial goals and expected benefits: opportunities to improve even further, business benefit management and preparations for NICEST-2 business case
  • Project budget in detail
  • discussing dependencies (IS-ENES, IPCC, ESGF, EOSC-Nordic, INES, national synergies,..) and project's timeline
  • Desired consortium representation during ongoing project manager recruiting process
