I just received this announcement via email from the Open Power Association (Italian open research organization)
Open Power Association Parkhomov-like experiment
an international scientific cooperation with the MFMP and others
Experimental Thread B
Participation in the replication of a Parkhomov-like experiment, with an international community of researchers and in cooperation with the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project. Preparation of a set-up that aims to be robust during the trial, operate in safely and with the possibility of cross-checks of the emerging phenomena. To show repeatability to other experimenters, flexibility to be able to maintain observation even when unexpected phenomena occur, the versatility to conduct tests even in conditions different from those provided by Parkhomov, particularly evidence in the context of our Open Patent Application, then with mixtures of powders, deuterium, subjected to continual electrical stresses, oscillation and pulsed discharge.
Here’s a comment and some links from the MFMP Facebook page:

The OPA shares images, schematics and protocol of their international scientific cooperation, including, but not limited to, the MFMP.
Here is a simple translation of the key texts (subject to revision)
Here is the original Italian version
The experimental protocol is described in the above document:
After calibration, the experiment will use two reactors, a dummy (reference) and another which will be loaded (active).
The temperature will be gradually raised with the aim of detecting deviations between the two reactors. The temperature will be controlled by monitoring the active reactor with the PID controller, which will in turn control the supplied power to maintain a stable temperature.
Subsequently, varied types of fuel will be used and discharge configurations (duration, intensity, waveform shape and repetition rate) in accordance with our Open Patent Application.
The overall system will record the behavior (in relation to the operating parameters) relating to various total power input compared with evaluation of the power produced. The results in the form of COP will be prepared into a report.
