What amount of work does the Fellowship entail? How much tangible activity is involved? What does the time-sheet look like, in terms of achievement?

From the outset, a day-by-day time sheet has been maintained. From this one can see at a glance how many programmes or articles have been published. You can see the growing list of training courses completed, and a lengthening catalogue of visits to academic institutions and universities.

The summary (right) covers the first phase from February to August 2004. More will be added to the list (the next one is scheduled for February 2005, at the end of the first full year).
