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.

EVN Call for Proposals

14 Sep 2015
Observing proposals are invited for the EVN, a VLBI network of radio telescopes spread throughout Europe and beyond, operated by an international consortium of institutes ( The observations may be conducted with disk recording (standard EVN) or in real-time (e-VLBI). The EVN facility is open to all astronomers. Use of the Network by astronomers not specialised in the VLBI technique is encouraged. The Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) can provide support and advice on project preparation, scheduling, correlation and analysis. See EVN User Support at
