llinkola Participants of working groups, or working group leaders, can give feedback to the general organization and we will discuss improvements. We will discuss the relation of the association to the working groups and see the differences and similarities with them. We will also discuss what kinds of future projects there will (or is planned) to be in 2017 and see if there are synergies there, and how should OKFI communicate and when about these projects.
Teemu R Common issues:
  • most WG's are not working well enough
  • how to really get people involved in the WG's
  • WG's are currently important to external stakeholders
  • WG should not be one projects
  • the issue of WG's is also difficult for people coming outside
  • what are OKFI's own projects, which are people's work, etc.
  • it is unclear how projects should be started - through WG's or elsewhere
  • should WG's and projects be more detached? Or more attached? 
  • "do I need to be an expert to consider to be a member of WG"
Jaakko K
  • Projects should be multi-disciplinary.
  • There should not be silos in a organisation like this.
  • "How to ask if someone is interested about working with me?"
  • There hasn't been project planning sessions or working group days for "normal" members.
