Science Vision & Infrastructure Roadmap 2020-2030

The new European roadmap for Astronomy

The specific aim of the Science Vision is to describe & prioritise ‘the key astronomical questions which may be answered in the next twenty years by a combination of observations, simulations, laboratory experiments, interpretation and theory.’

The infrastructure roadmap aims at building a plan for the development of the infrastructures to enable European Astronomy to deliver the Science Vision.

ASTRONET is now starting the organization of the new Science Vision + Infrastructure Roadmap, the goal being to deliver this by 2021.
