to ESTEC later this month.
Yours, Nic Walton

The agenda is now being finalised and will cover:

GREAT working groups
c) updates from new initiatives organised between the working groups -
such as the GREAT Chemo-Dynamical Survey (GCDS).
d) information and updates on the range of Gaia GREAT workshops and
conferences coming up in the next year.
The meeting will also give an opportunity for attendees and
representatives of the GREAT working groups to discuss and develop, in
the breakout sessions, new initiatives to bring forward in the year
for further development.
The Plenary is a good opportunity to get up to date with developments
around the Gaia science community. Thus if you plan on attending

Looking forward to seeing you in ESTEC
