Presentation of the Template for the identification of case studies

Emilia Kaleva presented the “Template for the identification of case studies” elaborated by the National
Institute of Immovable Cultural Heritage.

       Please see the presentation of the Template

Claudia Castellucci stated that the template is exhaustive and well elaborated but, since it should become a
first working document approved by all partners and validated by the Scientific Committee, she invited all
participants to make their comments and observations.

Andrea Savorelli, on behalf of the internal working group of the Municipality of Forlì, suggested to include
also bibliographic references for each item and the relevant internet links, to include also the most
significant plans of buildings, to upload as many photos as possible and to provide each item with ID
number. Besides, he noticed that the current technical condition of the subject cannot be described only
with adjectives as good, bad, in risk and that the parameters to demonstrate to what extent the element
represents the totalitarian ideology is questionable.
Emila Kaleva replied that some of Savorelli's suggestions were already integrated in the new version of the
template: bibliographic references, internet links and plans of buildings.

Tadeja Zupancic proposed to focus on descriptive value of the selected cases because the different
architectural items are not always comparable.

Christos Emmanouilidis highlighted that the target groups should be defined in details before finalising the
template.

Chrysostomos Stylios proposed to define the final users of the catalogued items before starting with case-
studies identification. He stated that the methodological approach depends on how the final users will be
defined.

Maria Topolcanska suggested to define the target groups and the adequate language which should be
used in the template. She proposed also to set up small working groups in order to concretise the definition
of the final version of the template.

Claudia Castellucci proposed to postpone to the afternoon session the discussion related to the timetable
of the WP3.

Presentation of the SEE Implementation Manual and practical tools for project management

Luca Rosselli, representative of SEE National Contact Point, presented all aspects of the Implementation
Manual as: contracting procedure, IPA and ENPI partners, Project changes, Financial management
procedures and reporting eligible expenditures.

       Please see the presentation: Luca Rosselli – Implementation Manual

Ognjen Tomic illustrated the reporting procedures and Project Partners' Guideline for SEE Partner Report.

       Please see the presentation: Ognjen Tomic – Practical tool for project management

It was noticed that many partners have a centralized control systems in their countries and that generally 6
months /1 year are needed to their Controllers to issue the Declaration on validation of expenditures. The
partnership decided to submit in time the first progress report since the preparation costs must be reported
and validated in the first reporting period.


Claudia Castellucci presented a detailed work-plan (including duties for each PP) for the first two
semesters.

       Please see the presentation: Caludia Castellucci Work-plan

Due to the delay in the project start-up the partnership decided to change the timeframes of act.3.1, act 3.2,
act 3.3, act 3.4 as follows:

               Deadline                                   Activities
          20.05.2011          Sending feedbacks on the template to NIICH
          27.05.2011          Final updated version of template validated by Scientific
                              Committee
          15.09.2011          Filling in the common template with selected case studies
          30.11.2011          Adapting the templates filled in by each partner in the
                              transnational survey

          31.01.2011          Organization of Forum Media in each country


In order to finalise the template in due time the partners agreed to set up a small internal working group. In
accordance to the new deadline the members of the group will send their feed-back to NIICH. The
members of the group are: Tadeja Zupancic, Andrea Savorelli, Anamarija Luksic, Christos Emmanouilidis,
Maria Topolcanska.
Nomination of the Steering Committee

The Steering Committee was officially nominated. Previously, each partner had proposed the name of its
representative in the StC and the names of Local Managers (project, communication and financial)

The ATRIUM StC will be composed as follows:

      Claudia Castellucci – LP
      Marina Flamigni – ERDF PP1
      Tadeja Zupancic – ERDF PP2
      Helena Knez – ERDF PP3
      Emilia Kaleva – ERDF PP4
      ERDF PP5 – to be defined
      Tamas Horvath – ERDF PP6
      Csilla Korodi – ERDF PP7
      Maria Topolcanska – ERDF PP8
      Costel Damian – ERDF PP9
      Chrysostomos Stylios – ERDF PP10
      Christos Emmanouilidis – ERDF PP11
      Anamarija Luksic – IPA 1
      Izabel Lnji Hnis – IPA 2
      IPA 3 – to be defined
      Slavisa Jelisic – IPA 4


The Steering Committee addressed the following points of the planned agenda:

   1. The StC approved the Communication plan without changes. The Municipality of Velenje will
      design and prepare the brochure of the project in English. All partners will provide in due time the
      summaries in national languages to be included in the official brochure of the project.

       The StC chose the concept n°1 as the logo of the project. Nevertheless the chosen logo is to be
       slightly adjusted in order to make it easier to be read.

       -   Please see the presentation: Logotype proposal

       The Municipality of Velenje will arrange the definitive version of the logo and its application on the
       project communication tools (envelope, notepad, gadget etc.).

       The Municipality of Velenje will prepare a website design proposal by the end of June.

       Michel Thomas-Penette expressed the importance of the logo in the establishment of a Cultural
       Route. He also recommended to find an appropriate solution to adapt a logotype for the countries
       that do not use latin characters. Tadeja Zupancic highlighted that the chosen logo is appropriate for
       the project but that for the Cultural Route different type of brand in needed.

   2. The StC decided that the next transnational meeting will take place in Bucarest in the second half
      of October. Damian Costel asked to change the place of the event to Iasi as it is more practicable
      for him to organize the meeting in the city of the Romanian partner. The LP will check with the JTS
      if this change is acceptable.

   3. Claudia Castellucci explained that the subsidy contract has not yet been signed because of the
      long contracting procedure with JTS. The reason for the delay is that the Municipality of Plovid
      (ERDF PP5) signed the partnership agreement on 26 April 2011. Since the permanence of the
      Municipality of Plovdiv in the project is not 100% confirmed, in case of the withdrawal, Milena
      Todeva expressed the interest of the Municipality of Dimitrovgrad to join the project.
    4. The StC decided that the Scientific Committee will be headed by the European Institute of Cultural
       Routes and composed by 5 experts: 3 architect, 1 historian, 1 urban sociologist. The European
       Institute of Cultural Routes will oversee the work of the Scientific Committee in order to optimize
       project outcomes and results and to suggest corrective measures in case of deviation or gaps
       towards the project. The European Institute representative will attend all Scientific Committee
       trans-national meeting.

        The candidates for the SC proposed by the partners were:

               Stephen Gundle, historian – proposed by LP
               Ullisse Tramonti, architect – proposed by LP
               Vedran Kos, curator of museum – proposed by IPA 1
               Jordanka Kandulkova, architect – proposed by ERDF PP4
               Sonja Ifko, architect – proposed by ERDF PP2
               Veronika Koczan – proposed by ERDF PP6
               Stefano Bianchini – proposed by LP&PP1

        Each partner provided general information about its candidate. Michel Thomas-Penette suggested
        two additional name for the SC: Alexander Bellman (Romanian architect) and Marie-Louise von
        Plessen (German historian).

        The StC ascertained that no urban sociologist were proposed for the SC. The European Institute of
        Cultural Routes proposed to find an appropriate candidate for the mission position.

        The final decision was taken by the majority of the member of the StC:
               Ulisse Tramonti – 9 votes
               Sonja Ifko – 6 votes
               Alexander Bellman – 3 votes
               Marie-Louise von Plessen – unanimity


        Considering her long lasting scientific and expert work the StC proposed Yordanka Kandulkolva as
        a associated member of the Scientific Committee.

        The StC reaffirmed that the consulting services and attendance fee for Scientific Committee’s
        expert will be paid by the partners who had proposed the candidate or by the country of origin of
        the candidate.

        Therefore, it was decided that:
         LP will cover the costs of Ulisse Tramonti
         ERDF PP1 will cover the costs of Marie-Louise von Plessen
         ERDF PP2 will cover the costs of Sonja Ifko
         ERDF PP9 will cover the costs of Alexander Bellman


Claudia Castellucci, on behalf of the LP, expressed her appreciation to the meeting participants for their
work and effective cooperation.
