Short description: SNOWMAN’s Think Tank Workshop was a two day “Large Group Planning Meeting” in Vienna from January 24th to 25th, 2005. Fifty research funders from 13 European countries looked for a common ground to prepare a transnational co-ordinated call for research in the field of soil-water-sediment system with respect to contamination. The participants developed the frame for SNOWMAN’s research agenda and the respective research management tools. 
Long description: First day’s activities were dedicated to research agenda. The European Research Agenda was finalised by the Technical Working Group Research within the 'European Soil Thematic Strategy' under the leadership of Winfried Blum, BOKU. The attendees focussed on the excerpted area contamination. 1. Which issues are in accordance with national programmes? 2. Which issues should be topics of the first co-ordinated SNOWMAN call? - Second day’s agenda was dedicated to research management. The answers resulted in a collection of shared ideas and opinions, with which the SNOWMAN core group can go ahead with a co-ordinated Call. 1. The SNOWMAN Call: Which procedures might fit for a one stage application? 2. Proposal Evaluation: Which criteria for the evaluation of proposals are to be named? 3. Research Funding: What are criteria for different funding models? 4. Co-operation: How to manage projects funded by the coordinated call? 5. Dissemination: How would you like research results to be disseminated?
