So much for a time-plan!
All EC-funded projects are regularly reviewed in order to ensure that they fulfill the requirements and expected outcome. SAIL is no exception.
I´m currently at our first SAIL review meeting where we are at the target for three assigned external reviewers – longing for finding out all the aspects of what we have done, what we are about to do and not the least why we are doing it. And I must say they are really interested!
We had an agenda initially. However, just having started our presentations, it was instantaneously scrutinized. We are literarily bombarded with interesting, relevant, reflecting and many times challenging questions. That’s good! It shows that there is a genuine interest in our work – from all three reviewers’ perspective and backgrounds, being it physics, computer science or network operations. On the down-side though, I wonder whether I will make my flight back home on time today…
