Astronet webinar 11 June 2021 - Defining a science vision and infrastructure roadmap for European Astronomy
As a next step in developing its science vision, Astronet has held an open webinar to present current status and seek further advice from the European astronomical community via the European Astronomical Society (EAS). The webinar included an overview of the process from the chair of the Astronet Board, with presentations from the panels who have been working on draft sections, and plenty of time for questions.
The aim is for further consultation in the next few weeks, followed by production of the report and delivery to the Astronet Board before the end of 2021.
Astronet is a consortium of European research funding bodies and national representatives purposed with developing a new science vision and roadmap, taking forward the pioneering and influential reports last updated around 2015. It includes as associates and observers ESA, ESO and the SKA and has close links to APPEC and the EAS.
The webinar was hosted by the EAS and took place on 11 June 2021, from 8h00 to 13h30 UTC (i.e. 9h-14:30h UK, 10h-15h30 CEST).
We have created a Slack space for the ASTRONET roadmap webinar. This is the invitation to join the space: https://join.slack.com/t/astronetroadmap2021/shared_invite/zt-r3acvcy9-g6bemq4SXFE1TJjgk~PHyg
