European Telescope Strategy Review Committee
The ASTRONET Science Vision and Infrastructures Roadmaps concluded that there is an urgent need to define a strategy for 2-4m telescopes at the European Level. Accordingly a panel has been set up to identify how Europe's medium sized telescopes can best contribute to the delivery of the Science Vision and to propose how a suite of existing telescopes can do so cost effectively. This panel, co-chaired by Janet Drew (Univ of Hertfordshire, UK) and Jacqueline Bergeron (IAP, Paris) was due to deliver their final report in the first quarter of 2010. This has now happened.
The panel wishes to thank those who took the time to provide input to the forum. It was very useful and indeed some is directly quoted in the report.
Important note: The report has now been finalised and can be found at the ASTRONET website:
