Point 1: Update on the relationship with Inartis

(Rachel and others, Juliette? Benoît?? 15min or more...)

We have received only one proposition from Juliette, for Inartis.
No extended space with others like Octanis was proposed, and indeed the same basic 'contract' was offered as the week before.
In concrete terms, a rent of 2300chf per month for the '60m2' of Hackuarium is proposed.
This comes to about 460chf/m2 (or more!) for the space.
One has to wonder what they really want with this proposition.
Certainly the idea that they want to 'support the development' of our association is placed in doubt.
The acknowledgement of the benefit from our presence in the 'atelier ecosystem' is clear, however.
While Hackuarium has a strong interest in becoming sustainable, to date we have provided services and had no salaries or compensation, generally, and have no formulated business plan. While we always planned this to occur, and realise the constraints of Inartis, there is no justification for exorbitant demands.
Is there any new proposition?
Are there any negotiations possible?
Does Inartis care about the impression that this all will be giving to others??

Point 2: Assembly General Extraordinaire

RA (5min)
Based upon the previous point: Do we need to make another special meeting?yes/no
Need 30 days notice for a GA extraordinaire...
Earliest meeting possible then the 5th (or 12th) September... Will fix the date together tonight, and from that decide next steps.

Point 3: Visit for inspection of the P1 laboratory

(Rachel, 1 min)
After almost a year with an 'official' P1 lab, and a date set for a 4 september inspection by those mandated for this by officials in Bern, all this new problematic of the association Inartis has put everything in question... We will have to see, what we see...

to note: J brought up the ventilation of the fume hood question, again, during last discussions with Sam !!
Will need to contact the people from Bern and tell them the situation, to see what will be best.
What about other projects? bio-sculpture, bioluminescence??

Point 4: Flights to Shenzhen, China for GOSH2018 are booked and funded!

RA and SS will be away between 4oct-14oct to participate in this great transdisciplinary meeting about open science hardware.

Point 5: Pea Plant pot distribution!
