31 March 2017. Bye Bye SOLARNET! Welcome PRE-EST!

SOLARNET Project ended!

SOLARNET, a network aimed at bringing together and integrating the major European research infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics in order to promote their coordinated use and development has ended today.

During two-days meeting, held in Madrid, the participants in this network (32 institution from 16 countries) discussed the main results achieved during the project lifetime. The main conclusion is that SOLARNET has been a very successful network in all its main activities: Access Programme, Networking and Joint Research. 

Tomorrow will start PRE-EST (Preparatory Phase for the European Solar Telescope), another very important project, which principal objective is to provide both, the international consortium and the national funding agencies, with a detailed plan for the implementation of EST.

Many thanks to all researchers, engineers, technician, and supporting persons who worked in SOLARNET. We will see the most of you also in PRE-EST!!!

30 March 2017. SOLARNET End-of-Project meeting (Madrid, March 30-31, 2017)

The last meeting of SOLARNET project started this morning in Madrid.

The whole consortium will present the main highlights achieved during the project.

20 January 2017. The IV SOLARNET Meeting finished today in Arrecife, Lanzarote.

The IV SOLARNET Meeting "The physics of the Sun from the interior to the outer atmosphere" has successfully finished today in Arrecife, Lanzarote, organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in the framework of the FP7 Project SOLARNET.

Aimed at providing a coherent picture of the Sun as a single physical system, more than 135 participants from 22 countries attended the meeting, held from16-20 January in Arrecife Gran Hotel.

It was really remarkable the high number of women that attended the meeting, and also the high number of young researchers from both sex that participated in it.

IV SOLARNET Meeting is taking place in Lanzarote, Canary Islands (16-20 January 2017)

The IV SOLARNET Meeting "The physics of the Sun from the interior to the outer atmosphere" in taking place in Arrecife, Lanzarote (16-20 January 2017), organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC).

Aimed at providing a coherent picture of the Sun as a single physical system, researchers from 22 countries are participating in the meeting. Graduate students and early-career postdocs are also attending the meeting and presenting their contribution and taking advantage of the opportunity to meet and discuss with their more senior colleagues. 

This conference is expected:

1) To provide a forum to discuss recent advances in the study of the solar interior, solar dynamics and dynamo, mechanisms of sunspot and active regions formation, and links between the subsurface dynamics, flaring and CME activity.

2) To identify the new problems in the study of the solar interior and atmosphere, and of the solar dynamics and magnetism.

3) To foster collaborations between researchers working at the study of the Sun’s interior and solar atmosphere and to create synergies between solar research programs at different wavelength bands.
