    EU Projects

    • 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.
    • ASTERICS2020 is a 4-year project that brings together researchers, scientists, engineers, hardware and software specialists from astronomy, astrophysics and astro-particle physics to find solutions to common challenges, such as the transfer, processing or storage of large amounts of data.
    • ESCAPE is a project that aims to establish a single collaborative cluster of next generation European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) facilities in the area of astronomy- and accelerator-based particle physics in order to implement a functional link between the concerned ESFRI projects and European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
