The cooperation of world-leading experimentalists and theoreticians in the field of strangeness nuclear physics with experts of the neutron star community in astrophysics within the networking activity THEIA allows to critically assess the status of our present understanding of the hadronic EOS, and to identify possible new avenues to follow. The annual workshops  organized by THEIA aim to provide a platform for the early exchange of new ideas and scientific results, leading to interlinked and complementary future activities.
Recent experimental studies on baryon-baryon momentum correlations by ALICE, new developments concerning our present understanding of the lightest hypernucleus 3LH, the role of hyperons in neutron stars were, and planned experiments at MAMI, FAIR, J-PARC, JLab and ELPH were central topics of the talks presented in Speyer.

THEIA is part of STRONG-2020 Project which is funded by the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020 under grant agreement No 824093. .
