RadioNet is an EC funded project, which brings together the premier radio astronomical facilities in Europe to serve a growing research community across all of Europe and beyond.

The EC funds of this programme are dedicated, among others, for disseminating scientific & technical highlights as well as for equipping scientists and engineers with essential training and this way take maximal advantage of existing and future radio astronomical infrastructures. All supported events must focus primarily on the scientific/technical results achieved using the RadioNet infrastructures (EVN, e-MERLIN, NOEMA, IRAM-30m, LOFAR, Effelsberg, APEX and ALTA) and the project  technical developments (AETHRA, BRAND EVN and RINGS).

RadioNet funds can be used to support travel of individual event participants, who either promote the results from the use of the RadioNet infarstructures or technical developments (talk/poster) or who bring added value to the RadioNet community through his/her expertise  (talk/poster). In case of the paricipants of traning events, eligible for the RadioNet support as the future users of the RadioNet infrastructures, the RadioNet supports primarly the invited lecturers and tutors as well as the early career, less well-funded institute’ participants. See the guide for organisers.

Additionally, the RadioNet funds are dedicated to support mobility, in order to reinforce the contacts between the different discipline groups: astronomers, engineers and industry. The exchange programme - STM (Short Term Missions) is open not only to the RadioNet partners, but also to other institutes (however, in the latter case the visit must take place at RadioNet beneficiaries).
