Representatives of three of the five VBDC projects met for the following specific objectives: - Review emerging messages from the projects and the audience category that could use the messages - Review emerging outcomes from the projects; - Identify other ‘quick wins’ that we need to focus on, in the next months including any scientific outputs that can be written up in the short term either within or between projects - Discuss preliminary plans and scientific contributions to the final VBDC Science Conference coming up in September 2013 Before the meeting project briefs were prepared and sent to each project team to be represented at the workshop. This brief consists of two sections: (a) a section on ‘looking back at what has been anticipated’ in the project at the beginning of the program i.e the research questions, potential target audience and expected outcome; (b) a second section on ‘projecting the project story’, which captures the emerging key messages, some outputs and project priorities for 2013. Moreover, some questions were listed in the brief to guide the process of reflection within project teams before and during the workshop: In addition to specific project brief, a summary of emerging key messages from projects V1 – V5 was distributed to the participants. This report and the attached synthesis in present the result of the various discussions and an update of the emerging messages from all VBDC projects.
