In low-energy nuclear physics increasing attention is devoted to revising the relationship between structure and reaction observables. On the one hand, several theoretical nuclear structure schemes are extending their reach to scattering observables and reaction theory. On the other, reaction practitioners are facing the challenge of reducing the model dependence and thus increasing the predictive power. The workshop will promote cross-talks between these communities with the long-term aim of developing consistent approaches to structure and reactions. Special emphasis will be given to optical potentials derived with different degrees of phenomenology (ab initio, from effective interactions, data-driven) and to the necessity of working towards reaction cross sections devoid of model dependent quantities.
