This web site presents the EISCAT_3D specific actions done by EISCAT and the Project Partners. The first step of the EISCAT_3D project was taken in 2005 by entering an EU supported FP6 Design Study activity. The EISCAT_3D concept has thereafter been identified as a large scale European interest scientific infrastructure. At the end of 2008, EISCAT_3D was included in the updated ESFRI Roadmap.
The Preparatory Phase, supported by EU through FP7, of the project was started in October 2010.
