RadioNet3 has been under review for the first 18 months of his activity. The Mid Term Review took place at the Max-Planck-Institut fuer Radioastronomie in Bonn on November 18, 2013. The aim of a technical review is to assess the work carried out under the project over the period and provide recommendations to the Commission. The RadioNet3 Reviewer was Prof. Richard Schilizzi, University of Manchester. The EC Commissioner Elena Righi-Steele attended the review session.

e-MERLIN has been in full operational mode for a number of months. A meeting will be held in Manchester from 10-11 April 2014 to discuss early science, both from the Legacy projects and from PATT observations from Cycle 0 and the early part of the Cycle 1 allocations. Prior to this meeting, a two-day data school will be organized on 20-21 January, aimed at helping those unfamiliar with the techniques of radio interferometry to reduce e-MERLIN data. The events are sponsored by RadioNet3.

The first RadioNet3 Periodic Report, which covers the 18-month period 2012-January to 2013-June has been submitted to the EC. Many people were directly involved, through contributing reports or in the editorial process. The report substantiates the many facets of RadioNet3 activities, the many partners and individuals involved, and the tangible outcomes achieved already in networking meetings, R&D, and transnational access research. The work done by partners in the RadioNet3 project will be formally reviewed in the formal Mid-Term Review in November this year.

RadioNet3 supports four outstanding events in the coming months. Three of the events are planned for September: the European Radio Interferometry School, the IRAM millimetre single dish summer School, and the Young European Radio Astronomers' Conference. Both schools are addressed to increase the expertise of young astronomers, the future users of the existing and coming on line radio astronomy facilities. The YERAC is meant as a platform for young radio astronomers to present their own research. In November, the The Radio Universe @ Ger’s (wave)-length conference is organized to celebrate the 65th birthday of Prof. Ger de Bruyn, who has been a leading figure in radio astronomy in the last few decades.

One of the goals of RadioNet3 is to stimulate new scientific activities connected with future facilities such as the Square Kilometre Array and the African VLBI Network. For this reason RadioNet3 supports the workshop "LARGE SCALE SCIENCE PROJECTS: EUROPE-AFRICA CONNECTS" through its NA ERATec. The workshop will be organized at the biennial event of the IEEE in Africa IEEE AFRICON 2013 (http://africon2013.org/). This flagship conference provides a platform for academics and industry professionals to share ideas and present their latest research. AFRICON 2013 will be hosted in the paradise island of Mauritius from 9 - 12 September 2013. The theme of the conference is "Sustainable engineering for a better future"
