Throughout the topics (computing model, ML, emerging technologies) a main question is whether we should focus our activities on a few, central projects and topics (WLCG, large astroparticle projects) and find solutions for those, or whether a broader approach should be taken. This is also connected to questions like whether we concentrate our effort to build up and maintain expertise on the lab level, or whether we push stronger for IN2P3-wide solutions, e.g. through stronger reseaux and participation in IN2P3-calcul&données master projects? Is creating expertise-clusters on specific topics in certain labs a way to go forward?
