European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures (ESCAPE) has received funding from the European Commission Framework Programme Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation action under grant agreement n. 84064. 

H2020-ESCAPE aims to address the Open Science challenges shared by ESFRI facilities (CTA, ELT, EST, FAIR, HL-LHC, KM3NeT, SKA) as well as other pan-European research infrastructures (CERN, ESO, JIV-ERIC, EGO-Virgo) in astronomy and particle physics research domains.

The official project launch date is 1 February 2019. The project has a runtime of 42 months and it will be coordinated by CNRS-LAPP, Annecy. 

In view of the project launch, CNRS-LAPP, the coordinator of the H2020-ESCAPE project is pleased to invite all the project partners to the ESCAPE Kick-off meeting in Annecy, France from 7-8 February 2019.
