The final CORE Workshop was held in Friedrich-Alexander-Universität, Erlangen, 8-11 October 2019.

This was the final time that all 15 CORE Early Stage Researchers had an opportunity to present their work to the partners. We also scheduled a CORE supervisory Board meeting for beneficiaries, associate partners and external experts to meet.   All Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and their supervisors, together with representatives of the associate partner organisations, external experts, the project manager and project assistant met for the final time to discuss the progress of the CORE project.

The event ended on Friday 11th with a mini symposium with invited external speakers (https://www.coreitn.eu/showNews.php?e=1&ID=68). This half day event was open to all with free admission.

A detailed agenda is presented below.

Who?

Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), their supervisors and colleagues, representatives of the partner organisations, external experts, the project manager and project assistant were invited to participate in this event.

TRAVEL
The easiest way to travel to Erlangen from Munich Airport is to take the train and the quickest route is via Munich. The train station, Munich Airport Terminal station, is located in a tunnel directly beneath the central area between both passenger terminals. The airport is connected to the city by Munich suburban railway (S-Bahn) lines S 1 and S 8. The ride takes approximately 35-40 minutes to the Munich Hauptbahnhof in the city centre. You can buy train tickets at the ticket machines in the airport. You can also buy tickets online or through the DB Navigator app.

There is a direct train service from the Munich Hauptbahnhof to Erlangen every two hours. Check the timetable boards which are visible throughout the station. Additional connections, which arrive semi-frequently, involve just one change of trains at Nuremberg. Check online or consult the DB app for live updates regarding platform numbers.

Travelling direct, the journey from Munich to Erlangen takes around 1 hour 20 minutes. Travel time for journeys involving changes varies. Information on trains is given regularly, usually also in English. There is also a television screen in each carriage with times and stops.
