Many more current topic will be presented and discussed (Programme). The atmosphere is informal with engaged and well-informed explorations of difficult and possibly controversial topics. This specific format is also motivated by the desire to create meetings in which cutting-edge research is discussed in a friendly atmosphere and a spirit of thinking and discussing with each other, as opposed to against each other… for the exploration of questions that can be raised in few other contexts. It was stated that the network should be a framework for international scientific discussion of “things that trouble me”.
