PROFOUND Status 2015

CIMG0570

Dear PROFOUND members,

at the end of a very successful PROFOUND year, I would like to present the current status of our COST Action to all of you. This should help us to target our efforts for the remaining 2.5 years of PROFOUND.

1) Here is a short summary presentation on how the different TGs in PROFOUND are planning to achieve their objectives and how the activities are linked. These slides should help us to link efforts and avoid overlap as well as decide where you can contribute best.

2) Below is a quick overview about the status of the TGs and the next steps so that you can decide where to contribute and learn about the progress of other TGs.

TG1: Closed, review paper ongoing, writing meeting February/March 2016 in Madrid

In the meantime, I would like to thank all of you for your great enthusiasm and the hard work you are doing for PROFOUND. Enjoy some holidays!

All the best on behalf of the Steering Commitee

Christopher
