Nuclear Astrophysicists meet for 4th ChETEC-INFRA General Assembly and TA User Meeting in Strasbourg

On May 27 and 28, the ChETEC-INFRA consortium met in Strasbourg. Hosted by IPHC, the 4th General Assembly brought together consortium members and nuclear astrophysicists from outside the consortium, to discuss developments in nuclear astrophysics and catch up on developments of the Research and Networking activities within ChETEC-INFRA, as well as the Infrastructures in the project.

Opening with an overview of the project, Day 1 of the meeting offered a mix of scientific presentations from project partners and invited nuclear astrophysics researchers, as well as news from the Europlanet 2024 RI Network, and the formal session of the General Assembly. After a long day of presentations and discussions, the University of Strasbourg’s planetarium offered a very fitting environment to continue the scientific exchange on topics of the Universe.

Progress reports of the ChETEC-INFRA Work Packages, and the Transnational Access (TA) User Meeting formed the program of day 2. The TA meeting offered the opportunity to exchange experiences and collect feedback on the TA program between facility representatives, TA users and User Selection Panel members.

About 60 participants joined the hybrid meeting. A detailed program and material of the presentations is available on the meeting web page.
