ASPERA-2

Deepening and broadening of astroparticle physics European coordination

Activity Code: ERANET.2008.1
Coordinator: Thomas Berghöfer, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY

 

Abstract:

Astroparticle Physics has become a mature and well accepted science discipline. Demonstrated by many world class projects currently developed and run by European Astroparticle physicists, Europe as a whole is the main promoter and leading the field. As a merit of ASPERA (AStroparticle Physics European Research Area network, http://www.aspera-eu.org/ ), the ERA-NET in Astroparticle Physics funded in the context of FP6 for 3 years starting in July 2006, the community as well as the supporting funding agencies are becoming more and more organised. In order to allow a deepening and broadening of the successful ERA-NET work started with ASPERA in FP6, the extended consortium here presents a work programme for a second ERA-NET phase (ASPERA-2).

Directly linked to the common action plan developed in ASPERA-1, the goals of ASPERA-2 are:

  • establish joint activities as the preferred way of funding R&D programmes and large projects,
  • establish sustainable procedures of mutual coordination and benchmarking,
  • create a sustainable structure for European Coordination in Astroparticle Physics,
  • extend the network to all European countries with interest in Astroparticle Physics,
  • increase the efforts towards global inter-regional coordination,
  • update the roadmap,
  • increase synergy with environmental sciences,
  • transfer knowledge and technology with SMEs, and
  • continue and extend outreach activities.
