The DESY PRC is organising an in-depth review of the babyIAXO proposal by a team of external experts (see the link in the left menu bar). The review will take place on Monday, 20 May 2019, with a report to the PRC on Tuesday, 21 May 2019. The aim of the review is to evaluate the physics case of babyIAXO, its technical readiness, and the organisation of the collaboration. 

With a positive statement from the review team and from the PRC, funding discussions could then start soon with the goal to formally launch the project in January 2020.
