Milestone 4.1: New project web-site launched

It is important for the EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project to have a web-site in order to provide a fast and reliable source of news from the project. The specific EISCAT_3D web-site ( has existed since early 2009, but has been updated to facilitate for the needs of the EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project. This update is what constitutes Milestone 4.1.

The maintenance of the website is handled by EISCAT Headquarters, but the relevant material can be produced by anybody internal or external to the project. The headline items at the web-site are shared through an RSS-feed. The web-site should contain everything related to the project, which means background information, relevant documents, information about the progress of the project and so on.

The web-site will also function as a repository of Deliverables and Milestones from the project, so that these are readily available for the general public as well as for participants of the project.

This Milestone was reached in December 2010.
