SOLARNET Project ended!

SOLARNET, a network aimed at bringing together and integrating the major European research infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics in order to promote their coordinated use and development has ended today.

During two-days meeting, held in Madrid, the participants in this network (32 institution from 16 countries) discussed the main results achieved during the project lifetime. The main conclusion is that SOLARNET has been a very successful network in all its main activities: Access Programme, Networking and Joint Research. 

Tomorrow will start PRE-EST (Preparatory Phase for the European Solar Telescope), another very important project, which principal objective is to provide both, the international consortium and the national funding agencies, with a detailed plan for the implementation of EST.

Many thanks to all researchers, engineers, technician, and supporting persons who worked in SOLARNET. We will see the most of you also in PRE-EST!!!
