Science Requirement Document (SDR)


The EST Science Advisory Group (SAG) has been working during the last months updating the EST Conceptual Design SRD prepared on 2010. 

The SRD compiles a number of science cases proposed by the SAG members related to the different top science goals proposed for EST. Defining critical scientific driver for technical requirements is one of its main goals.

The current SRD was presented to the international community during the first "EST Science Meeting" held at Giardini Naxos (Sicily) on June 11-15 2018. The EST SAG is analysing the outcome of the fruitful discussions and the update of the SRD is currently taking place.
