12-15 May 2019 Instituto Telecomunicações, Campus Universitário de Santiago, Aveiro, Portugal

The goal of the workshop is to bring together the scientific community that works in different domains of, and related to, astronomy (astronomers, cosmologists, astroparticle physicists, etc), to show the potential of the multi-messenger astronomy with the existent radio facilities, in particular, SKA precursors and pathfinders, and foster the interest in radio-related facilities in preparation to the advent of SKA.

The meeting includes review talks, hands-on and round-table sessions, with the main goal of maximizing the interaction between experts and the community.

This event has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730562 [RadioNet]
