Project H2020 “SOLARNET - Integrating High Resolution Solar Physics" (01 Jan 2019 - 31 Dec 2022) 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:

(i) Realise transnational access to all European users.

(ii) Integrate small communities and foster European collaboration.

(iii) Enhance and spread data acquisition and processing expertise to the Europe-wide community.

(iv) Increase the impact of high-resolution data by offering science-ready data and facilitating their retrieval and usage.

(v) Encourage combination of space and ground-based data by providing unified access to pertinent data repositories.

(vi) Foster synergies between observational and theoretical research communities by organising meetings where each presents state-of-the-art methodologies.

(vii) Train a new generation through student schools, a mobility program, and grant program to attend conferences.

(viii) Develop innovative post-focus instrumentation.

(ix) Develop and build next generation devices to correct for atmospheric turbulence.

(x) Lay foundations for combined use of synoptic and high-resolution facilities on ground and in space.

(xi) Dissemination activities towards society.

SOLARNET achievements will be of principal importance in defining the exploitation of the future 4-meter European Solar Telescope.
