IKBest5-the 5th international workshop on in-kind best practice
Big science facilities like CERN, ESA, ESS and European-XFEL are working more closely together in exchanging knowledge and resources. At IKBest5, we are going to have a close look at the pros and cons of international Big Science and models for co-operative research.

We will have a session dedicated to practical solutions for late-stage project management, installation and life-cycle management; and
We will have a session to develop concepts for an in-kind future of smaller and more flexible mobile devices post-AGATA and Euroball vis-à-vis large and monolithic facilities.
This is the fifth of a cycle of workshops initiated by the European Spallation Source (ESS) and resumed by GSI, FAIR and the EU horizon2020 project IDEAAL.

Registration deadline: 04 March 2019

You are welcome to join and register through the website: https://indico.gsi.de/event/7805/
