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.

European VLBI Network Call for Proposals Deadline 1st June 2015

26 May 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

Effelsberg Call for Proposals - Deadline 03 June 2015 (15:00 UT)

26 May 2015
The 100-m radio telescope of the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie and the data reduction facilities are available to all qualified scientists. The present policy allows the allocation of up to 40% of available observing time to external astronomers. The directors of the institute make observing time available to applicants based on the recommendations of the Program Committee for Effelsberg (PKE), which judges the scientific merit (and technical feasibility) of the observing proposals.
