Detailed planning of 1st year is intended as an around-the-table discussion led by each WP leader and with active participation of all participants to plan in more detail the activities will be carried out during the 1st year (e.g. experiments, exchange visits, etc), with specific reference to the milestones and to the expected deliverables.

2. WP contributors: 1-2 slides on each task you are involved in, both in general (Outline of workplan) and 1st year (Detailed planning). Please discuss in advance with your WP leader.
