Call for Affiliated Big Science Organisations

BSBF2021 welcomes more expressions of interest from Big Science Organisations in Europe to become BSBF2021 Affiliated Big Science Organisations. In order to strengthen the concept of Big Science as a market place, the organisers hereby open a second call for expressions of interest to become an Affiliated Big Science Organisation.

Eligible institutions are European or large national Big Science organisations that procure European-wide or internationally, and with tenders published in English language. Those interested institutions can download the text and conditions of the second Call for ABSOs here.

The envisaged group of Affiliated Big Science Organisations are facilities that have a dedicated procurement budget in the period 2020-2025 and have an interest in communication with industry regarding upcoming business opportunities and procurements that are open for European industry. Organisations that solely have an interest in addressing the European industry as end users of the facility are not the object of this call.

Selected Affiliated Big Science Organisations will participate in two specially designed parallel sessions for Affiliated Big Science Organisation on 29 and 30 September 2021.

Please send your expressions of interest with the heading “Affiliated Big Science Organisation” before  31 March 2021, to bsbf2021@cdti.es.

EUROPEAN SOLAR TELESCOPE

The European Solar Telescope will be the bigger solar telescope ever built in Europe. Located in the Canary Islands Observatories, it will triple the capacity of today’s largest solar telescopes operating in this continent. With a 4.2 metre primary mirror EST will look at the essential solar processes at their smallest scales, providing key understanding of how its magnetic field controls solar activity and affects the heliosphere and planetary atmospheres including our own.

The Sun is our closest star and, therefore, our best laboratory to understand the Universe. By peering into the physical mechanisms of the solar atmosphere in unprecedented detail, EST will solve long standing questions observing the Sun like never before.

As flagship of the European of solar physics community, EST will contribute to maintain Europe at the frontier of solar physics research, while at the same time will mobilise European industry to fully participate in the technological challenges to be faced up in the next decade in the field.
