The Einstein Telescope was in the spotlight during a networking meeting of the Dutch Province of Limburg in Brussels on 10 January.
Every six months, the Dutch Province of Limburg organises a networking meeting in Brussels “for everyone with an affinity for Limburg”, as provincial governor Emile Roemer opened the evening.
Roemer, in Brussels for talks with Belgian partners and administrators, stressed in his speech the need for cross-border cooperation on topics of common interest. As an appealing example, The Einstein Telescope project had been chosen as the evening’s theme.
“If we cooperate with our neighbouring countries, we can bring the top scientific project Einstein Telescope to our border region,” the governor said in his speech. “That is a fantastic opportunity for science as well as for the people in the region.” The construction and operation of Einstein Telescope would create all kinds of jobs and give the border region support to further grow into one of Europe’s leading knowledge regions.
