AstroCeNT-APC Annual Meeting: Highlights, Achievements, and Future Collaborations

On 20 December 2023, the annual meeting of AstroCeNT and its strategic partner, the Astroparticle and Cosmology (APC) Laboratory was held in a hybrid format, connecting participants both in Warsaw and virtually. This gathering brought together AstroCeNT’s group leaders, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and our guests from APC, creating a forum to review our accomplishments, ongoing projects, and the trajectory of future collaborations.
APC representatives shared insights into the major projects they are involved in (such as DarkSide, KM3NeT, LEAK, LACTEL, CMB-S4, etc), presenting opportunities for further scientific cooperations. Next the members of the AstroCeNT team took the stage, showcasing the noteworthy successes of each of the six research groups. These presentations highlighted the progress made during the active phase of the project, reflecting the collective pursuit of excellence.
An important aspect of the discussion focused on Polish-French cooperation programs for students and researchers. In this part of the meeting we were honored by the presence of the French Attaché for Scientific Collaboration, Prof. Jean-Luc Schneider who presented a portfolio of French international cooperation programmes.
The meeting held special significance as AstroCeNT recently concluded its current project term on 31 December 2023. Despite that, the enduring collaboration with APC remains steadfast, emphasizing our sustained dedication to cooperating in advancing the field of astroparticle physics.
