[download workshop book]

The CORE Workshop - Chirality in Practice will take place on 20-24 May 2019 in Groningen, the Netherlands hosted by Beneficiary Partner, Syncom.    All Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and their supervisors, together with representatives of the associate partner organisations, external experts, and the project manager will meet to discuss the CORE project.

A detailed agenda is presented below.


Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), their supervisors and colleagues, representatives of the partner organisations, external experts and the project manager are invited to participate in this event.


All ESR participants are expected to be present on Monday 20 May 2019 at 08:45hrs.

All Supervisors, Associate Partners and External Experts are invited to be present on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 May 2019.


To travel from Schiphol airport to Groningen takes  2 hours and 40 minutes by train.  Trains leave every 30 minutes.  One train is direct whereas a brief change is required for the other   [Full train schedule will be sent together with info how to get from train station to hotel in due course].

ESRs and Supervisors should make their own hotel arrangements.  

Recommended hotels include:

City Hotel Groningen, Gedempte Kattendiep 25, 9711 PM Groningen www.cityhotelgroningen.com

Best Western Hotel Groningen Centre, Radesingel 50, 9711 EK Groningen  

The Student Hotel, Boterdiep 9, 9712 LH Groningen www.thestudenthotel.com/groningen 

The preferred recommendation is City Hotel Groningen.   The other two are more than acceptable and located right in the centre of Groningen, which is not a large city.   The Student Hotel is a regular hotel rather than one specially for students.      For all hotels it is not more than a 15 min walk from the train station.   One can take a taxi, of course.  Prices will run about euro 90-100 euro/night.  Each hotel has cancellation policies.  It is wise to book in plenty of time because there are other conferences taking place in Groningen at the same time.

People who come with a car should look at the website of the hotel to get recommendations for parking.   There are quite a few (expensive) parking garages in Groningen.


Late Tuesday afternoon (21 May 2019) guided tour through centre of Groningen and dinner in a restaurant in the centre of the city - details to be confirmed.
