The XIII symposium of the Einstein Telescope (ET) took place this week in Cagliari, at the THotel.
The Symposium is organised in parallel sessions, hosting workshops managed by the ET specific boards (EIB, ISB, OSB and SPB), and plenary sessions to have a global view of all the ongoing activities. During the week several lectures on the physics of ET were organized with the support of the OSB for PhD students and young researchers. In this crucial phase the ET Collaboration is strongly committed to define details of detector configuration, the e-infrastructure and user services needed, to qualify the candidate sites and to better understand achievable physics goals.
At the XII ET Symposium in Budapest the ET scientific community formally established the birth of the ET Collaboration. After 1 year of activities the ET Collaboration now counts more than 1300 members, organized in 80 Research Units, affiliated to 202 institutions distributed over 23 countries and applications for new RUs keep coming. September 1st 2022 marked the beginning of the INFRA-DEV Horizon EU project (ET-PP) and consistent National funds are currently supporting ET activities (R&D and site characterization).
