WORCK Agenda

All activities of the WORCK network are listed here. While the annual WORCK Meetings, Conferences and Training Schools are organized centrally by the Core Group, a number of smaller meetings and activities are organized decentrally by the working group leaders and subgroup responsibles. This page gives an overview of all upcoming and past WORCK activities in chronological order.

If you would like to join one of the upcoming activities, please get in contact with the organising working group leaders or write an e-mail to worck@worck.eu.
