  3. 3. 3 of 9- Committee of European IntegrationKick-off meeting, Vrnjačka Banja, 28 April 2013Way out: forming consortiaWay out: forming consortia• Consortia of shareholders from small andmedium-size countries may be able to meet thecondition of the minimum membership fee.Examples:Centralsync (CZ–HU–SK to ESRF)CENI (AT–CZ–HU–SK to ILL)• Consortia can only be formed in a troublesomebottom-up process; however, governments areinterested in big and spectacular targetedactions.

  7. 7. 7 of 9- Committee of European IntegrationKick-off meeting, Vrnjačka Banja, 28 April 2013Work planWork plan• Forming the EPS CEI INARIE subgroup: asap• Elaborating a detailed action plan includingtasks, actors and resources: until October 2013• Identifying and contacting the RIs concerned:until December 2013• Contacting national physical societies: untilDecember 2013• Fostering national interest groups to theidentified RIs by national physical societies(when appropriate): until May 2014
  8. 8. 8 of 9- Committee of European IntegrationKick-off meeting, Vrnjačka Banja, 28 April 2013Work planWork plan• Meetings of representatives of the nationalinterest groups to a given RI — seeds ofemerging consortia: September 2014 to May2015• EPS contacts the RIs: January to December2015• EPS contacts the governments: September toDecember 2015• EPS CEI INARIE report: February 2016
