Launch event for the new European Astroparticle Physics Strategy
9 January 2018
The Astroparticle Physics European Consortium (APPEC) will proudly present the new European Astroparticle Physics Strategy 2017-2026.
The event will take place on 9 January 2018 10:00 – 18:00 in Residence Palace, Brussels.
The new APPEC strategy will be presented, addressing scientific issues and an update of the long term scientific strategies. Crucial organisational aspects and societal issues like global collaboration, community building, gender balance, education, public outreach and relations with industry will be discussed. By acting coherently upon these recommendations, Europe will be able to fully exploit the tantalizing discovery potential in Astroparticle Physics.
The ceremony will start with the new strategy, followed by a contribution of Robert Jan Smits, the EC Director General of DG RTD, a keynote talk about the exciting prospects of Gravitational Waves science and more.
The one-day event will include an interactive and lively afternoon programme for scientists, policy makers and representatives of funding agencies discussing the recommendations and how to implement them between all participants. Participants are kindly invited for active contributions and bringing up ideas.
Participation in the APPEC Roadmap event is free of charge.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels.
