WP10 - Europe of the Future: Science

WP10.1 - Science Case for the European Extremely Large Telescope

WP leader: Isobel Hook

The European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) is a major new infrastructure that will revolutionise astronomy in Europe and will allow Europe to maintain is world-leading position in astronomical research. This WP will provide the essential networking infrastructure to continue science case development in the critical period leading up to construction of the telescope and instruments. The WP will organise community E-ELT science meetings - one meeting will be held every other year. The meetings will be particularly important for maintaining dialogue between the E-ELT project, the instrument teams in the community and the base of future E-ELT users.
