Programme The Bucharest meeting is a one-week meeting open to all ACTRIS beneficiaries and associated partners. The aim of the meeting is to inform and gather feedback from the operators of ACTRIS Central facilities (Centres of Expertise, Data Centre) and of National Facilities (Observation platforms, Simulation Chambers, Mobile Labs), and to discuss the project progress and organize the work in all ACTRIS PPP WPs, including interlinkages with the operational activities.

Both, the technical workshop - focusing on the requirements and implementation of CF and NF in ACTRIS, and the provision of ACTRIS services - and the more project-oriented PPP meeting are strongly connected and should be attended as a whole.
