Optical Infrared Coordination Network for Astronomy
The long-term excellence of European astronomy requires continuous effort by all concerned. The Work programme sensibly requires an updated version of the innovative forward strategic planning which OPTICON has been developing on a bi-annual basis. Specifically, this WP will complement other network planning activity by delivering a top-level strategic analysis of the European-scale strengths of optical-infrared astronomy outside the major infrastructures, and will define the resources and coordination efforts required to maintain developed strengths. This planning will involve community leaders, national agencies, the EC, and the OPTICON TNA and network communities.
