Alasdair learning the joys of a perfectly coloured Gantt chart.

Following the successful submission of the 18-month progress report on the project to the European Research Council, Alex and Alasdair decided that it was time to review the entire project budget and timetable. The budget was successfully reworked on the recent trip to Budapest and, despite a number of changes to the original plan, remains with 5% of the original estimates. The cascade was more of a challenge, but with the help of a large expanse of floor and eleven different coloured pens we have thrashed out a Gantt chart.
