CRS Open Meeting

In the light of COVID-19 the CRS Open Meeting 2020 will be organised as a series of video meetings in week 24 and 25.

This meeting is organised to generate topics for potential research projects. New project proposals will be made for a selected set of research topics which will be presented at the Annual General Meeting.



Jun 8, 2020- Jun 19, 2020


The CRS organisation is simple and effective. Members have equal rights to bring forward ideas, write proposals, vote for new projects and participate at various levels in working groups.
In June the members discuss the technical progress in the working groups and ideas for new projects at the Open Meeting. At the Annual general Meeting in December, the proposals for new projects are presented and the members decide by a democratic voting which projects can start in the next year.
A Steering Group consisting of rotating members monitors the overall progress of work, stimulates discussions and proposes the long term course – in the end, the members decide. Logistics and archiving of reports are handled by the secretariat.
