I will try to bring more people from Lithuania, but first I need to get back home. I will probably spend the week of the 13th through 20th in Varena and will know more then. I would very much like to have George Christian Jeyaraj come. He is part of our team in Lithuania, but has a Sri Lankan passport. Is it possible to write him an invitation? Or may he get one through a travel agency? Andrius

- Internal Workshop on Grundtvig 1 proposal
- we must end up with an action program!
(morning) 9:00 departure of participants.
Our accommodation proposal is a student residence with double and single bedrooms, one bathroom per two rooms and a cooking facility in each room. The single rooms cost 10 euros, the doubles - 7 euros a night. Breakfast is not included in the price, but there is a cafeteria in the place where we’ll be holding the workshops that offers breakfasts and lunches.
Please note: you will be accommodated in Koszalin, not in Malechowo, as originally planned, which facilitates the transportation to and from the workshops, most of which will take place in Koszalin as well. Should you wish to stay at a hotel, we could book a room for you. Hotel rooms cost about 40 euros a night. But we strongly feel the student residence would satisfy your needs just as well. - Agata Michalak

Protocol by Monika Erb
We should plan 3 workshops until July 2005
David suggests to have a workshop in Middle England. There are contacts with a University in Teeside which has a very good “community informatics” department. There is a good connection with cheap flights (Ryanair). There is even a harbour for those coming by boat. The suggested date is in the middle of January. David will communicate the exact date until 20 October.
Our Slovenian partners have`t any Grundtvig fund but they nevertheless promised to host a workshop.
The suggested date is April.
Franz will communicate with Stanko Blatnik about this and hopes to come up with a definite date by 1 December.
The workshop is scheduled for July.
Rimante and Andrius will be responsible for it.
Purpose of the website
Three Pillars Model Content - Tools - Structure
Ideas for an image brochure of RIC (imaginary marketing - including existing building blocs)
2. Results of the RIC working group with Polish multipliers of 28 Sept. 2004 in Kozalin:
Basic questions for the Polish multipliers What are your personal needs? The needs of your organisation? What are your questions?
-information needed on how to get money for the projects -information needed on support for building up the infrastucture -thematic networking needed (special topics are worked on) -How large ist he area to work in? -Who shoud train the RICs? – difficult question -Where should the trainers come from? -Traines should work like streeworkers – trainers from abroad train people in the country
Visions - In two regions of Poland 15 RICs will be trained, they could be educated in Kozalin. These teachers need only 20% of the first column, nothing from the second column and 60% of the third column. Other regions have other target-groups and therefore do other work. The results of this work are put together and a common result is created. Each one does the work who needs.
- Poland has a network of information offices and information points which all cooperate with the AMS. People are not supported in their self studies, they are only provided with information.
- The Polish multipliers need more information on institutions and partners in other countries.
- Polish partners have to ask their organisations if they may cooperate.
- Also in Poland the networks are highly important for cooperation, not least in local administration.
