SOLARNET: High-Resolution Solar Physics Network has been financed by the European Commission´s FP7 Capacities Programme for the period April 2013 – March 2017 under the Grant Agreement number 312495.
SOLARNET brings together and integrates the major European research infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics, in order to promote their coordinated use and development.
This network involves all pertinent European research institutions, infrastructures, and data repositories. Together, these represent first-class facilities. The additional participation by private companies and non-European research institutions maximizes the impact on the world-wide scale.
Networking activities, access to first-class infrastructures and joint research and development activities are being carried out in SOLARNET to improve, in quantity and quality, the service provided by this European community.
In summary, SOLARNET involves:
More than 500 solar physics researchers.
32 partners from 16 countries: 24 EU research institutions; 6 EU private companies; 2 USA research institutions.
UTOV participation in SOLARNET Joint Research Activities include:
WP50-1.2: Evaluation and development of 3D compression algorithms for Solar spectro-polarimetric data.
WP60-1: Large diameter Etalons development (UTOV is WP-leader)
WP70-1.1: MCAO wavefront correction forecasting
WP70-3.2: Liquid jet impingement cooling system for the GREGOR hear rejecter
