Please register here for the first EBTRN Workshop. Please note that only current members of the network can participate, and current members shouldn't forward the invitation to other potentially interested parties.

Condensation nucleus

You may propose new ideas for the EBTRN and act as "condensation nucleus" for new research. If you are interested, please check "yes" below, and give a short description of the proposed research involving the EBTRN data. All information is kept confidential. If the conveners identify conflicts of interest, they may contact you and ask for permission to (partially) disclose your proposal to the other party to be able to resolve the conflict up-front.

Condensation nuclei will be asked to prepare short (5-10 min) presentations about the proposed research.
