Problem of PT response; PEB Report from Morris news:

Response from PTs not functioning
- discussions with variety of folks
- also other WPs (Cristina) and TD Balazs clearly indicate that PT concept maybe revised
- the reponse we get from these PTs is extremely low - no task grip
- potential drawback for JRA1 since the start, becoming severe
- If response not getting better then JRA1 and other WPs have a problem
- during the meeting also Francesco stated that many PTs do not answer
- Morris discussions with Oxana that the PT concept is not fully understood by everybody
- What can the PEB do to improve the PT concept? Nothing special yet

- Andrea : Also in JRA1.8 PTs have not answered, many e-mails, testings, etc.
- Andre : same issue for JRA1.7
- heard from many others same statements
