The E-ELT (European Extremely Large Telescope), which is currently under construction in Chile, will be complemented by a suite of instruments (HARMONI, MICADO, METIS, MAORY, HIRES, EPICS & MOSAIC) being developed and built by several European consortia.

An in-person event (Covid dependent) will be held on 16th February 2022 in Geneva to provide an overview of the future opportunities related to these instruments, and to give businesses the chance to network with the consortia building them.

The UK is able to put forward up to 5 businesses to attend the event, with a maximum of 2 representatives per company. If your company would like to be considered for this event, then please submit your interest via the survey below:
