AHEAD2020 training and visiting grant opportunity

January 26, 2021, from Steve Brygan

### AHEAD2020 Announcement of Opportunity Cycle 1 is now open ###

The AHEAD2020 (Integrated Activities for High Energy Astrophysics*) calls for a program of transnational visits and remote access activities to be performed starting April 2021. The main objectives are:

1) fostering new or strengthening existing collaborations on science and technology topics in high energy astrophysics (visitor program);

2) providing training and/or mentoring on high energy data analysis, use of advanced tools , computational astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy;

3) providing free access to some of the best European ground test and calibration facilities relevant for high-energy astrophysics.

Visitor grants include full reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses. To face possible restrictions to travel as effect of the pandemic, the possibility of remote access for a number of services in the area of data analysis, tools and computational astrophysics will be provided.

AO-1 Calls Opening: 11 January 2021

Submission Deadline: 22 February 2021(**)
