The first Einstein Telescope Annual Meeting, hosted at the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO), started yesterday and will continue until Thursday November 17th. Hundreds of scientists from all over Europe are joining in person and remotely to discuss challenges, projects and next steps towards Europe’s third generation gravitational wave detector, Einstein Telescope.
The community working on the ET project formally stated the birth of the Einstein Telescope Scientific Collaboration at the 12th ET Symposium held at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest on the 7th and 8th of June this year.
“The ET annual meeting is the 1st event involving the whole ET collaboration after its formal foundation, in June 2022; it is worth to note that in these few months the ET collaboration has grown-up passing the 1300 members – said the ET collaboration spokesperson, Michele Punturo – The ET annual meeting is a pivotal occasion to discuss the recent achievements and to prepare the next steps in the design of the ET observatory, in defining ET science and in setting-up the ET organization.”
The event has been also the occasion for all the paticipants to visit the largest European gravitational wave detector, Advanced Virgo.
This event is supported by the Horizon 2020 Framework programme of the European Union, G.A. 871158
