Project FP7 “SOLARNET – High-resolution Solar Physics Network” is an ongoing project with the goal of integrating all the major European infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics. SOLARNET was conceived as a framework to ensure that all European solar physicists have access to state-of-the-art facilities and data archives, as well as a source for collaborations aiming at the development of tools and prototypes for innovative instruments and data processing of importance for the future operation of EST.
Networking activities, access to first-class infrastructures and joint research and development activities are being carried out in SOLARNET to improve, in quantity and quality, the service provided by this European community.
In summary, SOLARNET involves:
- More than 500 solar physics researchers.
- 32 partners from 16 countries: 24 EU research institutions; 6 EU private companies; 2 USA research institutions.
SOLARNET Project achievements will be of paramount relevance to contribute towards the realisation of the 4m European Solar Telescope (EST).
