“SOLARNET - Integrating High Resolution Solar Physics" is an H2020 project running from 1 Jan 2019 to 31 Dec 2022 that aims at integrating the major European infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics.



SOLARNET involves all pertinent European research institutions, infrastructures, and data repositories. Together, these represent first-class facilities. The additional participation by private companies and non-European research institutions maximizes the impact on the world-wide scale.

The following actions will be taken:

  1. Realise transnational access to all European users.
  2. Integrate small communities and foster European collaboration.
  3. Enhance and spread data acquisition and processing expertise to the Europe-wide community.
  4. Increase the impact of high-resolution data by offering science-ready data and facilitating their retrieval and usage.
  5. Encourage combination of space and ground-based data by providing unified access to pertinent data repositories.
  6. Foster synergies between observational and theoretical research communities by organising meetings where each presents state-of-the-art methodologies.
  7. Train a new generation through student schools, a mobility program, and grant program to attend conferences.
  8. Develop innovative post-focus instrumentation.
  9. Develop and build next generation devices to correct for atmospheric turbulence.
  10. Lay foundations for combined use of synoptic and high-resolution facilities on ground and in space.
  11. Dissemination activities towards society.
