Actions:

1. Mapping of collaboration opportunities (see item #5 below) in order to:

 - have a basis for following up: what do they need from us?

 - decide on where to put efforts: how realistic (in terms of time, budget, geographical presence) is the collaboration? How does that fit with the business development plan?


4. Support to Cesar with writing and unrolling business plan

Questions:

-What is the status on the 40 pages business plan Cesar is working with?

The 20111124 Protei general strategy video shows the vision and milestones. A "roadmap" is needed to see who will be responsible of what, and for when it´s needed.

-What is the status on recruiting a board of directors?

-What are the responsibilities of Protei Subgroup leaders?

-What are our respective availability (in hours per week) to dedicate to Protei?
