The Athena Telescope - Advanced Telescope for High-Energy Astrophysics, slated for launch in the early 2030s, will provide unprecedented X-ray spectral and spatial resolution. This will be achieved by 3000 cryogenic microcalorimeters cooled to 50 mK.  The complete detection chain is being developed by a large international collaboration. I will discuss the mission and highlight the development aspects of the X-IFU instrument

We are looking forward to welcoming all those who are interested in attending.
