  • APPEC Roadmap Advert

Vision

We look forward to and expect new exciting results in the world of astroparticle physics. Following on from the successful direct detection of gravitational waves we see a future of discoveries from the current generation of dark matter and double-beta decay experiments, continuing gravitational wave research, new advances from the high-energy neutrino and ultra-high energy cosmic ray observatories, results from the large ground and space-borne dark energy surveys, and from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to Planck, findings with implications for cosmology.

In anticipation, APPEC is

  • preparing future evaluation committees and follow-up groups,
  • assessing current budgets at the level of its constituent funding agencies,
  • promoting European Horizon 2020 programmes aiming to coordinate European underground laboratories, gravitational wave antennas,  theoretical institutions and large data centres,
  • participating in programmes of coordination with other large infrastructures of astrophysics or particle physics
  • very active in promoting coordination with non-European agencies on global scale infrastructure issues.
