AHEAD 2020 opened an Announcement of Opportunity (AO) to support research visits to institutes/laboratories located in European or associated countries, in order to foster new or strengthen existing collaborations on multi-Messenger astrophysics. The call reads as follows:
The AHEAD2020 (Integrated Activities for High Energy Astrophysics*) calls for a program of transnational visits and remote access activities to be performed starting April 2021. The main objectives are:
1) fostering new or strengthening existing collaborations on science and technology topics in high energy astrophysics (visitor program);
2) providing training and/or mentoring on high energy data analysis,use of advanced tools, computational astrophysics and multi messenger astronomy;
3) providing free access to some of the best European ground test and calibration facilities relevant for high-energy astrophysics.
Visitor grants include full reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses. To face possible restrictions to travel as effect of the pandemic, the possibility of remote access for a number of services in the area of data analysis, tools and computational astrophysics will be provided.
AO-1 Calls Opening: 11 January 2021
Submission Deadline: 22 February 2021(**)
