1. Tech Awards

Ru had prepared a good document, the first part being well developped, but needing a lot of content on the rest of the document. Cesar has been slow

2. Deaf

Exhibition was great success. Sebastian did a great job hanging, Piem and cesar to the rescue.
T/U Eindhoven students did a great job.
We want to encourage them publishing on first, before they publish on DIY Drones, sailing anarchy or Instructables.

3. Brasil

Trip Planned by Kasia.
Cigac and University of Rio are under control.
Still working on the Belo Horizonte presentation / workshop and potential corporate sponsors : thos who build dams.

<peter> To pick that up Etienne, when a sample is collected, rather than measured in situ, sample preservation becomes the issue.
<kasia> any technique to get the data transmit in real time to the lab/mobile/computer (we have already talksed about it I know - I guess Gabbi and I  should strategise on that as I am sure that question will pop-out many times :)) </kasia>
<Etienne> sensing water: you can measure temperature, salinity, density, that's the easiest
Etienne: then you can take samples to be analysed in a lab later on. Peter could tell you a lot more than me.
<Peter> mentions about Google Ed Parsons <> in London to talk to (kasia suggested for the task)</Peter>
<etienne> we need to research that I guess. Here are some references: </etienne>

4. Transnatural (Amsterdam)

Transnatural is a new media art (art & Science) type festival in Amsterdam. They want Protei_006 floating in Amsterdam water - which is amazing
And in the mean time Sebastian would have the proototype in berlin to improve
