EURO-BASIN Annual Meeting 2014
2-4 Sept 201 (Copenhagen)

- Venue & Accomodation - Agenda - Presentations - Attendees -

The 2014 Annual Meeting will take place 2-4 September, at DTU Aqua (Charlottenlund).

Scope of the workshop:

Session will be chaired by WP leads, and should place priority on:

(1) research output of specific cross-WP relevance, and supporting WP7 & WP8, particularly key data for applying the "traffic light approach" to the North Atlantic (Mollmanmn et al., 2009);
(2) contingency plans to catch up on delayed activities per WP;
(3) assisting WP leads with outlining reporting to EC (Nov-Dec 2014; NB: project ends 31 Dec '14)

Although this was originally planned as an Open Science Meeting, we must place a priority on delivering the project, and assisting WP Leads to make a convincing case.

NB: PI willing to showcase purely research results, are kindly asked to re-orientat presentations on specific contributions to WP7 and WP8, and place their research in context of the whole project with specific examples.

Venue & Accomodation:

The meeting will be held at DTU Aqua (2 & 3 Sept) and a city location on the 4th Sept.

Travel expenses and accomodation are part of partner budgets.


NB: There may still be summer work on the train systems, best way to stay updated with any changes is in English (type Airport or WakeUp, Borgergade to Kavalergarden, Charlottenlund)

Cheapest option is to buy a KLIPKORT as you go to the metro station of the Airport Terminal.
There are yellow machines just before you board train, they speak English and sell 3 ZONE KLIPKORT for 200 DKK.

DON’T FORGET TO CLIP that ticket, once for each passenger BEFORE you board, or control will penalize you 100 EUR with a smile!

The zones Airport-Hotel and Hotel-Venue are the same (3) so a klipkort of 10 tickets should give you 5 return trips for the duration of your stay.
