CMWS Water Days 2023 | DESY Research Course 2023




The next CMWS Water Days are scheduled for 21-24th February 2023 starting with a welcome reception including a dinner talk on Tuesday evening at DESY. A preliminary program, which we are just in the process of finalizing, can be found on the left side. In addition to invited plenary talks on some recent research developments, we will inform about the latest strategic developments of the CMWS as well as update you on the immediate future plans. We will also organize working groups with respect to European funding, with respect to the sustainability challenge proposal FUNKMEM, and a young researcher meeting. There will also be time for a meeting of the individual pillars. 


This meeting will again be accompanied by the DESY Research Course, which is a part of DESY annual series dedicated to Master, PhD students, and other interested scientists. The focus of the upcoming research course will be "Molecular Water in Climate-, Astro-, and Geo-Sciences".
