Dear Node managers and staff,

We are delighted to send you the results of the NPT Startup Review that was conducted from 9 April to 20 May 2013 amongst all GBIF Node Managers and Nodes staff.

In this communication we send you the following three documents:

1. A summary report highlighting the main results of the NPT Startup Review;
2. A report showing those text responses provided in the review questionnaire that suggest additional features for the NPT Startup;
3. A response of the Secretariat to the results of the NPT Startup Review.

As you will see from the results, half of the responding Nodes are interested in using NPT Startup in its current form. We have therefore identified the current version of the Nodes Portal Toolkit Startup as release candidate 1. In the Secretariat response you can see what we propose in terms of an uptake strategy, while we are also doing the necessary developments to reach a next release candidate in 2013.

We would like to thank all staff that has contributed in one way or the other to the NPT Startup Review. As you will see the response rate has been very good, and we appreciate the effort you have been putting in the review. In case you still want to share some feedback or experiences with us, this would be more than welcome. Feel free to send an email to the responsible Secretariat’s team at nodes@gbif.org

Best wishes,

Alberto, Burke, and Olaf
