Global Collaboration and Integration Development
Global collaboration and Integration development are strategic priorities of the Europlanet 2024 RI. Our target is to strengthen and expand the European planetary science community by providing opportunities for collaborative and culturally agile engagement with the international planetary science community.
We aim to generate a globally integrated and interconnected planetary science community and stimulate the creation of new opportunities in a long-term vision.
Efforts will focus on
- The inclusive growth of countries with emerging space programmes – in particular African and South American countries, where several TA1 infrastructures are located.
- Defining the boundary conditions for a pilot TA between Europe and planetary infrastructure providers in Asia (China and Korea).
In this perspective, we will support the development of a network of Europlanet 2024 RI Ambassadors to promote European planetary science globally, and generate international collaborations and networks through training workshops, meetings and conferences, science dissemination at national and international levels. This task will also scope out and pilot a sustainable TA programme with Asian partners.
The Europlanet Global Collaboration and Integration Development Strategic Plan
Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure has published a Strategic Plan for Global Collaboration and Integration Development.
The long-term goals at the root of the Strategy are to create the conditions for new scientific partnerships between EU and non-EU countries. Enhancing planetary science links between EU and non-EU countries will underpin growth in the scientific community and the free circulation of ideas. However, economic, political and social commitments within global partnerships will only succeed through sustainable development, equality in the allocation of available resources and the building of trust on both sides.
The strategy has five goals and sets out objectives and outcomes for each:
- Connecting the planetary science community
- Creating local Hubs for engagement
- Spreading the word at a global level
- Piloting sustainable Transnational Access
- Fostering innovation connections
