The 7th ET Symposium is hosted by the Villa Finaly in Firenze. The focus of the meeting is on the synergies and convergences between the Einstein Telescope project and the LIGO 3G idea. What is the future of the GW astronomy and astrophysics? Should a 3rd generation observatory be a unique global infrastructure? Is possible to have a mixed network of infrastructures composed by a 3rd generation observatory and a series of advanced detectors?
The workshop is preceded by a meeting focused on the next H2020 call on integration of research infrastructures to be held in the afternoon on February 1st (2:30pm CET).
The workshop is an ELiTES event.
