AHEAD2020
REINFORCE

AHEAD 2020 is a Research and Innovation Action  funded by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme  for Research. Its goal is to integrate the communities of high energy astrophysics and gravitational waves into a new large community that acts coherently, sharing practices and ideas. This goal is better articulated in the following four objectives, which the project works to accomplish:

  1. Defining and improving a common policy on the issues of low latency alerts, data sharing and publication rules;
  2. Supporting the exchange and common interpretation of experimental results;
  3. Discussing interdisciplinary issues with other domains of fundamental physics (Cosmology, Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Photonics/Materials) as well as Geoscience and Atmospheric 
  4. Defining the enabling technologies and the main technical design elements of the next generation of relevant large infrastructures, in particular Einstein Telescope.

Resources available for the community include access to experimental facilities; access to X-ray and Gamma-ray data analysis, astrophysical models and tools and gravitational wave data archives (LIGO and Virgo’s); a visiting programme to support research visits for scientists and engineers; grants for collaborative studies, dissemination of results, and a strong public outreach package.
