Problems: Starting this year the new Provincial funding's rules (and of all Italian public administrations) requires that funds are duly accredited by the end of the current year, otherwise you would realize the condition, absolutely not recommended, a debt off balance. So we showed to all partners, during the meeting in Corfu, our concern of possible delays in founds's accreditation. We agreed that all partners commit themselves to respect on time of all project's deadlines, so as to facilitate a more rapid founds's accreditation.
