Zellhof will organize International Centers Day, and it will be in July 24:th 2014.

The Future of Goose Network

We had an ongoing discussion during the whole CMC about future directions of Goose Network and what works and what works less well. In essence, Staff Exchange, ICD and Staff Exchange is considered to work very well and had a lot support from the centers and so did the key idea behind the Goose Network that it should be a lightweight informal network, so we just continue with that.

The interesting thing is the stuff to change, but that’s for another blogg post, but regarding updating the mission statement, Papa-G and Jose from Sajocinot will work on a proposal for updated and clarified mission statement that will be available for the next Goose Network Meeting.

Thanks for attending and keep up the good work.
