If you have questions about any of those projects, please put them either into this thread or into the thread where the project has previously been discussed (find it by clicking on the "read more" link for one of the projects, then scroll down to further links)

Perhaps I could also prompt the PSI people to provide updates about those projects on the forum (for the ongoing projects).

And if you work for an organization which is a SuSanA partner but doesn't have projects in the project database, how about getting them added now? You can do so via the partner profile page for which someone in your organization has the login. If in doubt just contact the secretariat: This email address is being protected from spambots.
