Stars are the “Cauldrons in our cosmos“ being responsible for creating all of the chemical elements from carbon onwards. The elemental abundances we observe today in our solar system are a result of many different nucleosynthesis processes taking place in various kinds of stars and phases of stellar evolution, over billions of years. To understand how our universe evolved chemically, and which nucleosynthesis processes and stellar sites are involved in forging the elements, we need to combine knowledge from different disciplines, such as observational astronomy, stellar evolution modeling, nucleosynthesis codes, and theoretical and experimental nuclear physics. The BRIDGCE UK Network aims to bring together scientists from all these fields to BRIDge the Disciplines related to Galactic Chemical Evolution. It facilitates and encourages collaborations between scientists of different areas to address important outstanding questions in galactic chemical evolution.
