8th of May 2013 - 15:00 - Kick off - Helland Hansen at GFI

Agenda & minutes, decisions marked with A

  1. Why are we here: short introduction to the idea (by Aleksi)

  2. Discussion
    • Should there be two separate groups for PhD's and Post Docs
    • A: Yes, two groups with partly joint meetings
      • Should we just divide immediately, if we think this is the case?
    • Who should be involved? (whole BCCR community?)
    • A: Yes, this should be ResClim subgroup involving all the ResClim students in Bergen
    • What kind of format should we have?
      • Presentations, problem solving events, 'what went wrong' -presentations, brainstorming events?
      • All these are good ideas. Meeting frequency should be something in order of 2-3 in a semester (~once in two months). It was decided that the next meeting will be a brainstorming event
    • Role of the webpage: gather information about all the practicalities (put the 'How to survive' -file from the old PhD forum online)

  3. Core group?
    • Since nothing works without responsible persons we should probably decide who want to be in charge of organizing meetings etc.
    • A: We decided that in each meeting we will choose a person responsible for sending around emails for the next meeting
      • This way we will spread the workload and hopefully keep the task of the 'responsible' person as a low level thing so that people don't feel that it takes too much of their time

  4. Next 'meeting'
    • Brainstorming event and beer afterwards, 4th of July
