Organise ENES policy on choosing partners for Copernicus bids
The DTF has resolved that a compact set of partners is a necessary condition for delivering bids to deliver climate data store support for Copernicus. It would not be good for Europe if we salami sliced this funding across groups. We need to make sure the upstream modelling groups recognise their benefit would not be direct funding from this opportunity for running their ESGF interfaces per se.
Action: Sylvie to request Francesca to produce with a timeline of calls; and ask the ENES board to deal with a political decision about how to deal with avoiding political salami slicing. Sebastien to add some paragraphs to give context for each of the known calls.
