The LHC has been performing superbly. The Run 2 of the LHC has ended recently and the integrated luminosity has surpassed 300 inverse fb at 13 TeV center of mass energy. It will now take much longer to reach multiples of the collected statistics. Absence of New Physics (NP) signs from existing LHC high pT data analyses suggests that a discovery from direct searches is unlikely in the near future. On the other hand, some experimental anomalies in low energy flavour observables continue to intrigue, sustaining the hope that NP not too far away from the electroweak symmetry breaking scale is still waiting to be explored. In addition, 2020 will also be the year that the Belle II experiment starts analyzing data for some interesting physics. Various anomalies observed at the LHCb will be put to the test in a completely independent experimental setup. This scientific program aims to bring together a mix of experts working on flavour physics, beyond the Standard Model physics, as well as LHCb and Belle II experimenters. It aims to facilitate a deeper reflection on the current situation, to place flavour physics into the big picture both within well motivated theories beyond the Standard Model, as well as using model independent approaches, and to find a meaningful interplay between the direct searches at the LHC and indirect probes at the LHCb, Belle II and other low energy precision experiments.
