Procedure for establishing OCHS research projects

If this is accepted then a letter of agreement will be sent, termly reports on the project will be reviewed, a website created and maintained to share the ongoing products of the project (reports, recordings of presentations, proceedings of symposia and conferences, reference to articles, publications, etc.)
