Time           Activity

17:00h         Welcome and some words by the coordinator

Topic 1        MIP EU and financial part
               Action by all: Please present your theoretical part of the residue of your
               For members not able to come: please send this part not later than
               Tuesday December 6, to the coordinator

Topic 2        The Survey and tentative results
               The latest actions and results will be discussed including how to use the
               results for our final report

Topic 3        MIP technical implementation plan
               This item is needed for our final report. A summary of all items will be
               presented at the final MIP conference. Members who do not send in their
               final implementation plan in January 2006 ready for publication in our
               final report, are not fulfilling their contract and there might be a change
               that the EU will demand back, all the previously paid money.
               At this meeting we will discuss the different implementation plans received
               in order to find out if there is assistance needed.
