This working group, which involves representatives of the three ELI Facilities and of the ELI-DC management, is in charge of estimating the future costs of ELI’s operations. The meeting follows an extensive cost review performed by an expert panel in December 2017 and January 2018. The main objective of the working group was therefore the review the recommendations of the panel in view of completing the costing exercise initiated in 2017. This work is directly connected to the negotiations on the future contribution model of and sustainability plan for ELI-ERIC.
