RadioNet3 Homepage

RadioNet3 is a project supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). RadioNet3 builds on the success of two preceding RadioNet projects and takes a leap forward towards the facilities of the future (such as ALMA and the SKA).

RadioNet3 includes 27 partners operating world-class radio telescopes and/or performing cutting-edge Research & Development (R&D) in a wide range of technology fields important for radio astronomy.

The general goals of RadioNet3 are:

  • To provide and facilitate access to the complete range of Europe's outstanding radio-astronomical facilities 
  • To secure a long term perspective on scientific and technical developments in radio Astronomy by pooling skills, resources and expertise
  • To stimulate new R&D activities for the already existing radio infrastructures, ensuring the readiness of a scientific and technical community for SKA 
  • To contribute to the implementation of the Strategic Plan for European Astronomy (ASTRONET) by building a sustainable radio astronomical research community.

Funding agencies and international project consortia recognize RadioNet as the European entity representing radio astronomy.
