1 I3/CA Europlanet - EC Contract – JENAM, Liège, july 6th, 2005 EUROPLANET A network of the EU in support to the strengthening of planetary sciences in Europe M. Blanc, M. Dougherty, J.-P. Lebreton, E. Flamini, C. Guidice, I. Muller-Wodarg, O. Witasse, G. Chanteur, O. Dutuit, F. Ferri, B. Kazeminejad, N. Krupp, H. Matti, S. Miller, H. Rucker, R. Srama, K. Szego, J. Zarnecki. European Planetology Network

2 I3/CA Europlanet - EC Contract – JENAM, Liège, july 6th, 2005 Origin of the project Cassini/Huygens is a joint mission of ESA and NASA to the Saturn world and to Titan, involving the two Agencies, industrials and over 200 scientists from the two sides of the Atlantic The European participants want to maximize the scientific return of the mission, and to take this opportunity to strengthen for the long term the European planetary science community With the EC support Europlanet seeks to : –Bring additional resources –Involve a broader community in the mission all other missions –Develop tools and collaborations for all other missions

3 I3/CA Europlanet - EC Contract – JENAM, Liège, july 6th, FP6 “Structuring the ERA” - Research Infrastructures Action: Coordination Action - Project duration: 48 months - Budget: 2 M€ - Number of labs involved: 60 - Number of participants: countries represented The EC contribution will: - set-up the network - stimulate exchanges and joint research activities But not fund research internal to participants. Key figures
