Guest: Giacomo Bertazzoli, Marta Bortoletto, Vittorio Iacovella

BIDS Meeting Notes:

Next year we should be in time for the [Chan-Zuckerberg funding scheme]{.underline}. It is aimed at software, but we have plenty of that. Now it just closed 2 days ago.

Yarik offered to pick up the prize on 30 Nov. He probably will have to give a talkspeach!

Funds – Ariel (or maybe split to Cyril to have part in America and part in Europe) // other must be spent on salary support for each of the applications (i.e. 25k divided by 5). Is this necessarily or could be transferred to other things? Ariel mentioned that he does not need it, Robert mentions that for him it would be valuable to maintain involvement past his steering group term. Yarik could cover his steering group involvement % but does not have to. Any BIDS maintainer needing funds? I could check if I could “subcontract/consult” them out to those through Dartmouth.

Some delay because Giacomo moved to the USA.

Giacomo suggests to split it into sub-BEPS and first deal with TMS-EEG and later with the others. That is well received by the steering group. Attention to common fields across modalities.

There are specific subgroups (in UK, …) interested in contributing to specific combinations of stimulation and other data.

Budget in Italy, probably easiest to try to allocate it for Stefan or Remi. First part of the budget needs to be spent by March and the next batch in December. [ACTION POINT: Anthony to ask other maintainers.]{.mark}

Ariel comments that the relationship should not be only financial, but also that the BEP team should be trained to take on the maintenance and the next sub-BEPs more onto themselves.
