RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES ACTION
ILIAS is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative that has pulled together all of Europe’s leading
infrastructures in Astroparticle Physics to produce a focused, coherent and integrated project to improve
the existing infrastructures and their operation as well as to organise and structure the scientific
community to prepare the best infrastructures for the future.
ILIAS results from an extensive consultation of the community and an internal review process through the Astroparticle Physics European Co-ordination (ApPEC).
ILIAS has 20 participants. In addition, there are numerous institutions that will contribute to the activities of ILIAS (but are not signatories to the contract).
