The EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase Project, funded within the EC Framework 7 programme, is coming to an end. The project began in October 2010 and will end at the end of September 2014. Currently there's the so-called "end-of-project" meeting underway in Kiruna, Sweden, hosted by EISCAT Headquarters.
During the project, the results of all 14 work packages are presented to the project participants. The meeting then concludes with a public presentation of the project, its results, and future outlook. These are reported in a large set of Deliverables, which are publicly available on the EISCAT_3D website.
Needless to say, "end-of-project" refers to the current preparatory phase project only, the EISCAT_3D endeavour as a whole of course continues!
