DTL Focus Meeting

Jump to: navigation, search

DTL organizes meetings about specific topics for which we identify a need in multiple locations or multiple sectors. We call these "Focus meetings" and they are organized on afternoons at either at a meeting location in Utrecht, or at another location chosen by the chair. The meetings are organized by one person in the center of the network of experts on that field. All focus meetings have similar programs containing a number of short presentations followed by a general discussion. After the meeting, the organizer (with help of the speakers and the attendees) writes a white paper with concrete conclusions and action items.
