EISCAT_3D is a project led by EISCAT Scientific Association.
EISCAT_3D is a three-dimensional imaging radar to be located in the northernmost parts of Europe. It will be making continuous measurements of the geospace environment and its coupling to the Earth's atmosphere from its location in the auroral zone at the southern edge of the northern polar vortex.

The e-infrastructure of EISCAT_3D

A document has been prepared in order to provide an overview of the planned e-infrastructure for EISCAT_3D. This document was originally produced be used by the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI).

Two applications for EISCAT_3D funding in Sweden submitted

The Swedish EISCAT community has submitted two applications for funding from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet, VR). The two applications are for investment into, and operation of the EISCAT_3D international atmosphere and geospace research radar 2014 - 2018.

Signing of the EISCAT_3D applications

The picture above shows the moment when the EISCAT Director Craig Heinselman (to the left) puts his signature on the applications. The preparation of the two applications was coordinated by Johan Kero (to the right in the picture) at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) with input from the primary EISCAT_3D user groups in Sweden:

Questionnaire for ESFRI Research Infrastructures

In the second half of 2012 the European Commission started to review the progress towards implementation of all projects currently on the 2010 ESFRI Roadmap. A group of high level experts was appointed in order to evaluate the financial and managerial maturity the different projects on the roadmap. A questionnaire was sent out to the infrastructures to provide the expert group with the latest information on the projects.
