Networking Activities

The following networking activities are being carried out to foster a culture of co-operation between infrastructures for research on solar physics, and scientific communities:


WP20. Integrated operation and exploitation of solar physics facilities and coordination with other research infrastructures

The main objective of this activity is the coordination and implementation of the Trans-national Access and Service Programme. 

Other objectives will be also addressed, like the definition of scopes and development of guidelines for pipeline procedures; feasibility study on service observing mode; and the coordination with other research infrastructures among others.


WP30. Solar physics networking

The aim of this work-package will be to foster collaborations among different solar physics groups, promote the interaction and cooperation among researchers of different level of expertise, as well as to encourage and promote synergies with other fields.

Exploitation of ground- and space-based data; enhancement of collaborations with other communities and projects; and promotion of collaborations between the new generation of scientists and experienced researchers, through short stays and training actions to acquire competences in relevant fields of solar physics, are some of the actions foreseen.


WP40. Innovation towards industry

Under this activity, we plan to carry out a strategic approach to innovation, aligned with the Innovation Union initiative, to reinforce the partnership with industry by engaging the project in the existing and highly successful channels to promote transfer of knowledge to EU high-tech industries.

The participation of industrial experts on selected topics will be assured. An identification and compilation of solar astrophysics' technologies will be carried out. Donor/Receiver workshops will be organised with space-related/high-tech community.
