Abstract

RadioNet is an EC-funded programme that has pulled together all of Europe’s leading radio astronomy facilities to produce a focused, coherent and integrated project that will significantly enhance the quality and quantity of science performed by European radio astronomers. RadioNet has 20 partners ranging from operators of radio telescope facilities to laboratories that specialise in micro-electronics, MMIC design and superconducting component fabrication. The programme includes incentives for increasing transnational usage of observing facilities, research and development in mm and sub-mm receiver technology, advanced software for interferometric applications and new technologies for phased array receivers, as well as numerous networking activities designed to enhance the coordination and co-operation of European radio astronomers.
