At the EGO site the 4th and 5th of March is organized a workshop to discuss about the future of GW research. This is an initiative addressed to the preparation of the "What Next" event organized by INFN.
The GraWIToN Project begins the 1ts of February 2014. It is an Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission with about 3,7M€ under the FP7-Marie Curie Actions. 13 PhD students will be recruited by European Universities, Research Institutions and private companies and trained in GW Science and Technologies. The management kick-off meeting is organized the 19th of February at EGO.
The 5th ET symposium was held the 22nd and 23rd of October 2013 in Hannover, hosted by MPG. The event web page is available here.
Like in 2012, the (second) general meeting of the ELiTES project has been held in Tokyo (4th-5th of December 2013) in the auditorium of the European Union delegation in Japan and, the second day, in the Sanjo Conference Hall in Hongo Campus of University of Tokyo. The meeting web page and the registration are available here.

The GraWIToN proposal, submitted under FP7, has been positively evaluated by the REA and it is currently under negotiation.

GraWIToN is an "Initial Training Network" project, under the Marie Curie Actions, aiming to the joint training of 13 PhD students in Europe; the training is focused on 2nd and 3rd generation GW detectors. Five Universities, four research institutions and centers, three industries/private companies will collaborate in Europe in a 4-years project under the coordination of the European Gravitational Observatory.
