Facing several recent requests, the Board felt the need to discuss about a possible change in PDEs budget.
At this time the Board is divided about this topic, however after discussions two possible solutions have been put on the table:

- A budget comprised of several items for each one of the divisions

The Board decided to continue to discuss internally, in order to have the opinion of all governors. After a discussion period, the Board will create a motion to take a final decision.
