Let $\cal{M}$ be a finite von Neumann algebra and $\cal{N}$ be a von Neumann subalgebra of $\cal{M}$. The von Neumann algebra $\cal{M}$ is is amenable relative to $\cal{N}$ if there exists a norm one projection of $<\cal{M},\cal{N}>$ onto $\cal{M}$. See Nicolas Monod, Sorin Popa, On co-Amenability for groups and von Neumann algebras. (https://arxiv.org/abs/math/0301348).

Question: Can we characterize the relative amenability of von Neumann algebras in terms of first Hochschild cohomology group?
