| Important updates|
- Mission and vision is stabilizing, with almost everyone adhering to it. We need to work on a list of values.
- Branding: some people don't like the name VIE, and would like to rebrand the project - see document if you want to get involved.
- Space: the negotiation for the building on Park Avenue is still not resolved yet. SENSORICA will expand its operations with Capitol Industries (same building it is in now), building a Robotics lab. See photo album with visited spaces.
- Services offered in the center are defined HERE. Yasir is now redefining his role to offer services to networks forming the Open Alliance.
- Funding: a proposal for academic funding is under way with Soumaya, Mai and Genevieve. We are putting in place the mechanisms to fund a Robotics lab. See more on funding strategy.
- Governance: still working on the governance of VIE and of the Open Alliance.
