Objectives


WP5.1: Workshops & Roadmapping:
 Map astronomical science goals onto technologies already
available and those requiring further development
 Identify links to implementation paths and funding sources.
 Investigate how European cooperation can help make significant
advances in these areas.
 bring together teams to develop proposals for technology
development relevant to astronomical telescopes and
instrumentation.
WP5.2: Information Exchange & Networking:

Encourage interactions to develop European capabilities for
technology development
 e-mail newsletters, web-pages including an interactive WIKI
site
 Develop industrial networks using existing frameworks where
possible.

Future development projects



Plans will follow roadmapping
Need to influence FP7 programme – is it
too late?
Must link to international agency funding
and priorities eg ESO, ESA

Future activities:

Industry Club



Knowledge Base


Seen as important, but needs funding
Could get industry and national agencies to fund
We want to help development groups know what
knowledge exists in Europe – both research and
industrial groups
Both activities lower priority – will be started
once the network has really become productive

Issues for the Opticon Board

What is the scope of Technology in Opticon?



Waveband – 0.4 to 100 micron?
Ground based and Space
What do we mean by Technology


What should we concentrate on?


Include systems, software, facilities….
My bias is technology for ELT instruments
What timescale?

5-15 years?
