In addition to the annual days when our community will be able to meet, one of the first initiatives of the GdR-NS-CPU consists in the organization of video-seminars every 3 to 4 weeks. The idea is to invite, in a first part, a young researcher working in a GdR team (ideally in thesis or post-doc) for a presentation of 20 '+10' and, in a second part, a more established scientist, most of the time from abroad, during a 45 '+ 15' seminar allowing us to open up to new horizons. We will try to alternate the themes as much as possible, while keeping as "core target" colleagues carrying out microscopy / near-field ultra-vacuum spectroscopy studies.
