Lille Turbulence Program 2021

The LMFL is launching the first edition of the "Lille Turbulence Program" this year. The event which will be renewed each year takes place over 4 weeks in July. About twenty international guests are invited to present and discuss their work, think about new avenues of research and collaborations or work on the experimental and numerical LMFL's databases of turbulent flows.
