AHEAD2020 – 2nd Announcement of Opportunity

July 22, 2021, from tdomf_b336c

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

1) fostering new or strengthening existing collaborations on science and technology topics in high energy astrophysics (visitor program);
2) provide access free of cost to selected European astronomical institutes and data centres for support in high energy and multimessenger data analysis, as long as computational astrophysics.
3) providing access free of cost 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-2 Calls Opening: 12 July 2021

Submission Deadline: 30 August 2021(**)
