QueSERA Task2: Advertising Radio Astronomy capabilties

This work-package aims at areas in Europe that do not have established communities in radio astronomy. Frequently, astronomers in these countries are not involved in defining the science priorities for the current programmes or the facilities of the future. Next to the very successful TNA programme, it is important to advocate the usage of these facilities in relation to science themes that can be important for ALMA and SKA in a more strategic context. In this work package the RadioNet3 facilities will be advertised as a whole, particularly targeting fellow astronomers, who are in communities (geographically or topically) that are traditionally not engaged in radio astronomy.
