June 15, 2015. GREST Project kick-off meeting (Madrid, Spain).

The kick-off meeting of GREST (Getting Ready for the European Solar Telescope) -a H2020 funded project- is being held today in Madrid.

GREST is intended to take the European Solar Telescope (EST) to the next level of development by undertaking crucial activities to improve the performance of current state-of-the-art instrumentation. Legal, industrial and socio-economic issues will also be addressed, as key questions for the attainment of EST. 

GREST is coordinated by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and involves other 12 European institutions. The total cost of the project is EUR 3.956.730, and the EU contribution is EUR 2.977.273.
