17th PAC Norrköping

Since the 3rd MoU (November 2005), the governance of the ALADIN project is under the responsability of the General Assembly (GA) who designs the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC meets before each GA [1] : the Minutes of the PAC meeting are one of the preparatory documents of the GA. See also the PAC’s Terms of reference in annex to MoU4.
Since May 2013, it has been decided to have a back-to-back HAC/PAC with a joint HAC-PAC session. In May 2017, it was decided to move the PAC meeting from spring to autumn, to take into account the new process for the common Rolling Work Plan. This will be effective from 2018. The question is still opened to have a PAC (and a HAC/PAC) meeting in October 2018 (HAC will meet anyhow on 17-18 October 2017 in Madrid).
