(13) Workplan

Recommended Posts

As Richard rightly pointed out, this is the most difficult part of the application form to fill in. The major problem concerns the different amount of days people have. Christiane is a particular problem as overall she only has 60 days available compared to most people's 230. However, here is my first draft of Year 1. Would be grateful if members of the project could add their comments.

I ought to be able to fit this in to my schedule.

I'll probably write and translate the material into Swedish myself, and then get someone Swedish to check it (probably Niklas Ammert).

We have money to do this. However, if you do it yourself, this can be taken from the total number of days for you and we can use the money to invite more speakers.

Great job, John.

It is OK for me. As Citizenship project will overlap with EHELP, I prefer to dedicate fewer days the first year.

Congratulations John.

You have done a fantastic plan.

I agree with the complete schedule.

In Portugal, I would prefer to organize the meeting in Santarém (it would be easier). It's a city 80 Km from Lisbon. There is a good train connection from Lisbon (50 minutes).

Is it OK?
