Mankind has always been fascinated by the stars. By simultaneously observing the same region of sky through multiple telescopes around the world, the latest radio astronomy techniques provide the most detailed view yet of the universe. Sharing these enormous amounts of observational data previously involved shipping disks to a single location, making real-time observation impossible.
Research and education networks, such as GÉANT, are essential for scientists to access, share and store these huge data sets quickly and efficiently with no geographical restriction.


GÉANT and ORIENTplus – delivering cosmic results by studying gamma rays.

The EXPReS project

Data from radio astronomy projects was previously collected at each telescope on magnetic tapes and later onto hard disk.


The NEXPReS project

​Boosting scientific capability to offer better and deeper images of the radio sky to a larger number of astronomers.
