During a session in Maastricht on 18 October, representatives of knowledge institutions, government and development companies were updated on the progress towards Einstein Telescope EMR.
At the invitation of Stan Bentvelsen and Guido Derks of the Dutch project group for Einstein Telescope EMR, more than forty representatives of knowledge institutions, national governments, provinces, regions, the Euregio Meuse-Rhine, universities and development companies from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany came to Maastricht on October 18th. All these partners in the project told what steps they have now taken towards the joint bid book for the Einstein Telescope Euregio Meuse-Rhine.
The general conclusion was that much work has already been done, but also that the necessary challenges still await in the coming period. The greatest common denominator between all those different disciplines: the conviction that in some time there will be a rock-solid proposition that will ensure that the Einstein Telescope is built in the border region of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
