6 … share … facts “Seasonal feeling” of Euprio Steering Committes, Conferences No ordinary care / no eveyday sharing Presidency alone Euprio is a house where we are not guests. We are landlords.

10 … dare … policy Keep constantly updated Think. Be creative. Think in grand style Hoist the sails and go where the sea is the bluest Non quia difficilia sunt non audemus, sed quia non audemus, difficilia sunt. [ It’s not because things are difficult that we do not dare. It’s because we do not dare that they are difficult ] — Seneca, Epistuale Morales, 104. 26

11 … dare … action  Be acknowledged by European Institutions Building up relationships with EU and relevant EU institutions for collective communication projects and to support policies over EHE/R Test whether there are grounds to participate to European Framework Programmes

13 … dare … action  More investments More tangibles: events (meetings, seminars, training events), non-events (e- newsletter, paper competition)


15 … TOO MUCH ? At this point we have 2 chances: (boastful) put in the bucket as much as we can  (realistic) at least something will be done; (wisely retiring) put in the bucket as little as possible  (realistic) nothing will be done…

16 In better words… Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. — Theodore Roosevelt
