The workshop concentrated on reporting and understanding recent measurements of the nuclear dipole excitation strength, particularly at low energies, with a focus on electric excitations. The related observables have relations to the neutron radius and neutron skin in nuclei, which are also currently under investigation. Both quantities play a key role in improving the predictive power of nuclear structure theory in the isovector channel. In turn, this has a strong impact on understanding the structure of neutron stars and neutron-rich environments in astrophysics
