1st KAGRA-Virgo-3G detectors workshop is organised the 16th of February in Perugia, Italy. This workshop aims to exploit the synergies between the KAGRA detector, realised in Japan underground and adopting cryogenic mirrors, and the ET observatory, having quite similar technologies. The web site of the event is: https://indico.ego-gw.it/event/12/

The 9th ET Symposium is hosted by European gravitational Observatory, Cascina (Italy). The focus of the meeting is the creation of the ET collaboration, the definition of the strategy for the submission of the ET proposal to the 2020 update of the ESFRI roadmap. We will discuss the future of the GW astronomy and astrophysics.
