On 9 Dec 2016, the new ASTRONET Board has hold its first meeting at ESO headquarters, celebrating the signature of the new Memorandum of Understanding and the continuation of a success story for the coordination of national funding agencies and international organizations for Astronomy in Europe. ASTRONET is now ready for a self-sustainable organization, the first step being to complete within a few weeks the representation of many additional national agencies in Europe that have indicated their intention to join.
Conny Aerts (Belgium, FWO), Denis Mourard (France, CNRS), Ronald Stark (The Netherlands, NWO), Colin Vincent (United Kingdom, STFC), Rob Ivison (ESO), Saskia Matheussen (The Netherlands, NWO), Luca Valenziano (Italy, INAF, participation by visioconf)

A special session «ASTRONET 2015-2025 - The Next Decade» at EWASS 2015 was held in La Laguna on 24 June 2015.
ASTRONET was started in 2005 and supported by the EU under FP6 and FP7 to establish a permanent mechanism for the coordination of the investments in European astronomy. This initial period produced a Science Vision and a Roadmap that covers scientific topics from the solar neighborhood to the limits of the observable Universe and also engaged virtually all astronomical communities and funding agencies in Europe in this coordination.
Having completed these major steps, ASTRONET is now prepared to launch its permanent successor in order to continue the science-based strategic planning for the development of all European Astronomy. The ASTRONET LAUNCH EVENT was held at the OBSERVATOIRE DE PARIS on 17 June 2015.
The Board Meeting No. 5 was held on 17 June in Paris.

ASTRONET offers here an overview of proposal deadlines concerning current and forthcoming calls for proposals issued by ASTRONET partner agencies including timescales and thematic constraints. Also listed are permanently open funding programmes of ASTRONET agencies. This overview (ASTRONET’s Task 5.4) is meant to provide information for interested transnational research groups on European wide funding opportunities in order to foster coordinated funding of transnational research projects: http://www.astronet-eu.org/IMG/pdf/...
