    • Issues to be discussed and decided Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
        • How do the various sub-tasks fit together 
              • i.e. methodology development, stakeholder mapping, case studies 
        • How are the practical elements of these tasks divided 
            • does the same person/team contribute to all of these tasks related to a specific set of case studies, or are they more separate?
        • How will workflow be organized 
              • e.g. linking case studies with analytic activities that follow
