ERATec Task1: Technical Workshops

The major objective of this task is to further strengthen the collaboration between the groups active in the development and operation of radio astronomical instruments at the European level, providing a solid and formal ground for mutual growth, collaboration and support. Forum participants will meet at least once per year for one or two days in the framework of a technical workshop (TWS) to which the TOG members will be also invited. Furthermore there will be up to three additional one-day TWS workshops distributed over the NA’s duration of 4 years.
