Scientific Kick-Off Meeting, Berlin, 18-19th March 2010


The Scientific kick-off meeting of NanoTP was held in Berlin hosted by Bessy II (http://www.bessy.de) represented by Dr. Peter Guttman.

Unlike conventional conferences, the meeting was constructed around the poster session,
with posters representing the work of each participating group. 
A selection of keynote lectures described the current state of the art and outline key scientific and technological problems and challenges for NanoTP over the coming four years, followed by a guided tour of the Synchrotron facilities.

The emphasis within the meeting was on discussion and networking, notably cross-fertilisation between the different workgroups.
