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.

RadioNet3 supported radio astronomers team observed the initial conditions of massive star formation

27 Jun 2014
Massive stars are responsible not only for some of the most spectacular phenomena in the Universe, but also for the production of heavy elements, key for the origin of life.

EVN measurements show no evidence for radio emission from the Type Ia SN 2014J

3 Jun 2014
A team led by Miguel A. Pérez-Torres has used the FP7 RadioNet3 transnational access programme to look for a radio emission in the recently discovered supernova Type Ia SN2014J. The newly made observations with a total of 8 EVN stations show that there is no evidence of such emission in the surrounding region.
