European radio astronomers prepare for the 6th Framework Programme

In preparation for the upcoming Sixth EC Framework Programme (FP6), a group of European radio astronomers representing most of the continent's professional radio astronomy groups held a coordination meeting at Jodrell Bank Observatory (United Kingdom) 14-15 September 2002. The main goal of the meeting was to plan radio astronomy proposals for FP6. The meeting was attended by (see photo):
