CAPE Forum is a meeting organised once per year by the volunteers. Its objective is creation of the opportunity for networking by younger members of CAPE community and presentation of non-published results of their research. The original idea of the Forum was the creation of the independent from CAPE WP platform of activity. The autonomy of the decisions by Forum organisers should be preserved to better serve the original aim of the Forum:

  • The format and scope of the CAPE Forum is decided by the organiser of the meeting.
  • It is not required that the responsible person for the organisation of the meeting should be a member of CAPE WP.
  • It is suggested that CAPE WP Chairperson is supporting the organisers according to their wishes and existing technical and organisational possibilities.
  • The Chairperson should support the Chair of EURECHA to ensure the continuity of the event by encouraging volunteering to organise CAPE Forum.

It is suggested that the information about the CAPE Forum (place, time, participation, scope) will be given at the CAPE WP business meeting and presented on CAPE WP website as well as EURECHA Website.
