The 7th Belgian-Dutch Gravitational Waves Meeting will be hosted by the Van Swinderen Institute for Particle Physics and Gravity at the University of Groningen. This event aims to bring together astronomers and physicists interested in gravitational wave science and for researchers to inform each other of recent developments and new projects. The meeting will start at 10:30am with a keynote lecture. In addition, there will be overview talks on general topics/experiments as well as contributed talks on specific projects, particularly by students and postdocs. The day will be closed with drinks and snacks. This meeting is open to all interested researchers, also from outside the Netherlands and Belgium.
