Please note this page is for historical reference only as OPTICON FP7 (2009-2012) is complete.

This WP has multiple objectives relating to the development of night time and day time (solar) astronomy. These include:

WP12.3 - The European Association for Solar telescopes (EAST)

WP leader: Wolfgang Schmidt

European Solar astronomy is poised for a quantum leap in capabilities with plans for a large solar telescope included in the AstroNet science vision roadmap. This WP will establish groups which will address key objectives towards this goal. The group will also oversee the solar astronomy element of the OPTICN trans-national Access programme.
