EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase
The aim of the Preparatory Phase was to ensure that the EISCAT_3D project reached a sufficient level of maturity with respect to technical, legal and financial issues so that the implementation of the EISCAT_3D radar system could begin immediately after the conclusion of the phase.
The Preparatory Phase took place between October 2010 and September 2014, and continued from the conclusions found in the Design Study that was concluded in 2009.
The EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase was funded by the European Commission under the call FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2010-1 “Construction of new infrastructures: providing catalytic and leveraging support for the construction of new research infrastructures”.
