Olivier Crepin-Leblond:Last EURALO Survey on Expertise: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-9DGJQHT7/
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:Very good pooint by Oksana. The survey should ask national priorities indeed
Silvia Vivanco:@ Yrjo, for any surveys, staff will be happy to put all the questions into a platform (clicktools) and distribute
Oksana Prykhodko:I have no connection any more. I just would like to propose for Agenda Item 4 to write financial request for next FY to ensure particiaption of EURALO members in European national IGFs - to empower national ALSes, which are involved in these national IGFs
Oksana Prykhodko:I disagree with Wolf. Yes, both Ukrainian ALSes are involved in Ukrainian IGF, but we did not manage to organize really multistakeholder platform. That is why we urgently need Olivier's help and help of other EURALO members
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:@Oksana: a request was made this year by other RALOs for this, and the response frmo ICANN has been mixed. Most requests have been rejected. Please see: https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+FY17+Budget+Development+Workspace
Oksana Prykhodko:Thank you Olivier. request for ICANN studenkeries was rejected for years)
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:@Oksana: and you can see the ICANN Finance Department response: https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/54696459/Adopted%20FY17%20SO-AC%20Additional%20Budget%20Requests.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1463795944000&api=v2
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:They further rejected some of the requests made that the ALAC Finance & Budget Sub Committee passed. So we can try and submit requests in the future, but should not hold our hopes too high :-)
Oksana Prykhodko:@Olivier thank you
Wolf Ludwig:I don't know the situation in Ukraine but in Germany, Switzerland, France etc. the engagement of our ALSes in national IGFs works for many years ...
