Starting from the Scientific Vision, produce a plan for the development of infrastructure for European Astronomy over the next 10-20 years: “the Roadmap’’. This will involve the diverse facets of astronomy spanning solar physics to cosmology and consider facilities and infrastructures in support of all aspects of astrophysical research.
Engage stakeholders to develop an implementation plan for the Roadmap.
Co-ordinate the implementation plan for the Roadmap internationally by engaging with top level European and global bodies e.g. ESFRI & OECD GSF.
