Focus Meetings

DTL Focus Meetings address well-defined scientific or infrastructural issues that cross borders between technologies or domains.

  • Contact us if you want to organise a Focus Meeting or suggest a topic.

The meetings are initiated when the DTL core team or DTL-associated scientists signal problems or solutions that come up in multiple research groups. Focus Meetings usually feature a few short lectures, followed by a well-prepared discussion that engages the whole audience. A white paper or report is prepared after the meeting, so that the results can be shared with the DTL community.
