10 Midterm Review Meeting, Helsinki10 Important open tasks Implementation of national nodes Identification of potential centres for national nodes in several countries Support for an application for national funding for a Spanish PD network. Already existing national nodes (D, UK) cannot be integrated into EuroPa yet. Problems: Additional financial resources must be found for node implementation There is no legal basis yet for integrating new members. The EuroPa infrastructure needs to be set up and approved first.

11 Midterm Review Meeting, Helsinki11 Important open tasks Constitution and bylaws There has no organisation / consortium been constituted yet. Consortium agreement drafted does not provide a solution for EuroPas sustainability. Project results (registry policy, clinical trial organisation) should be considered for a constitution. Solutions: important questions are currently handled by resolutions A proper legal form must be found for the network still during the funding period in order to secure: 1.the long-term existence and sustainability of EuroPa and the further use of the infrastructure currently being established, organisational basis for admitting new members (national nodes, centers from other countries)
