RadioNet3 Homepage

RadioNet3 was a project supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) from 01.01.2012 - 31.12.2015.


RadioNet3 included 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.
RadioNet3 built on the success of two preceding RadioNet projects and took a leap forward towards the facilities of the future (such as ALMA and the SKA).

The general goals of RadioNet3 were:

  • 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.


NOTICE: The RadioNet project continues under H2020. For more details please visit the project webpage: 


YERAC 2016

3 Jun 2016
This year's YERAC will be organized and sponsored by the MPI for Radioastronomy in collaboration with its IMPRS for Astronomy and Astrophysics. As in most years since 1968, early stage radioastronomers (i.e. PhD candidates and postdocs) will meet, discuss and network in a relaxed atmosphere. Each participant is given the opportunity to give an oral talk.

Active Galactic Nuclei: What's in a name?

26 Nov 2015
Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are being discovered in ever-larger numbers over the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Different bands employ different methods to identify these sources but, most importantly, provide different windows on AGN physics. The infrared band is mostly sensitive to obscuring material and dust, the optical/UV band is related to emission from the accretion disk, while the X-ray band traces the emission of a (putative) corona. γ-ray and (high flux density) radio samples, on the other hand, preferentially select AGN emitting strong non-thermal radiation.
