1. HEAD project goals revision

All main goals and aims of the project have been revised and cleared for all members as per our application:

-    Exchange of good practice and approaches to heritage education for adults via ensemble and individual mobilities.
-    For Grundtvig purposes, we mainly have to declare travel tickets (the rest of the accountancy work should be done according to each country's legal regulations).
-    Recording of viewed methods during all mobilities.
-    Testing these methodologies in different countries and recoding how successful these methods have been.
-    Rest of aims as per our application (will be available on project web page)

Also all outcomes have been reviewed and cleared for everybody:

- Main outcome will be a list of all viewed and tested methodologies with a record of how successful it has been.

2. Dates for future group meetings

The group has agreed that by the end of October 2009, Milan will communicate to Italy, Finland and Lithuania several dates, which will be offered to the rest of the project members and we will try to fix the dates for ensemble meetings in advance.

3. Individual mobilities organization and partners' needs

Individual mobilities will be set directly between partners.
The partner, who owns the mobility, has to report to Milan about it prior to the mobility.
Number of mobilities already used and future mobilities will be presented during ensemble meetings.

Summary sheet of these forms will be one of our project's main outcomes. That is why it is very important to follow this rule.
