On October 21 the FRANCI meeting took place at ECAP.
This annual workshop is organized by the Universities of Würzburg (JMU) and Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and was hosted this time at the ECAP. Around 60 students and scientists from the University sites of Bamberg, Erlangen and Würzburg came together to to exchange recent developments in astrophysics, astroparticle and high energy physics. The FAU and JMU groups are working in various collaborations, so colleagues from experiments such as CTA, HESS, KM3NeT, IceCube, ANTARES, EXO-200 and some more were present to discuss current and future projects in their shared field of research.
Besides a great barbecue, there were plenty of opportunities to socialize and thus strengthen the bonds between Würzburg, Bamberg and Erlangen.
