This is the report on the analisys of the feedback provided by participants through their evaluation forms.

These are the final recommendations extracted from that analysis:

  1. The Node managers appreciate and need information about the new Darwin Core Archive format. Training and communication efforts must continue to ensure that the topic is appropriately covered;
  2. Producing and handling metadata is also increasingly raising the interest of nodes. Creating and promoting specific materials about the topic is probably required;
  3. The programme of these event must be carefully planned, less diverse in the number of topics presented and with expanded and better organized practical sessions;
  4. Many node managers didn't have the opportunity to have their doubts and questions fully answered. An alternative mechanism will be defined to allow the continuation of the debate;
  5. The parallel sessions and the resources in different languages have been very positively received. The effort to enable this should continue.
