NEANIAS to help interactive exploration of Mars composition via spectral data access.

Planetary science is very broad, with subjects of study ranging from the interiors of planets and moons to the space environment in between them, and a wide range of bodies, from dust to giant planets. Even just within terrestrial planets, there is a lot of geologic diversity. Different Solar System bodies are characterized by a variable complexity, which is reflected by their surface geology and composition.

NEANIAS will integrate the thematic services into the EOSC ecosystem after they reach the maturity required by EOSC. The first plan for the Integration of the NEANIAS services into the European Open Science Ecosystem has been prepared as part of the project’s Deliverable 8.1 which was submitted in August 2020. 

One year more, Copernicus Hackathon 2020 in Athens finished successfully, with a high level of the participants. NEANIAS project has been fully involved with the event, since the innovation and the search for technological solutions to today's challenges in our environment is part of our essence. The teams have carried out an outstanding work, and that is the best result for us.

NEANIAS (Novel EOSC Services for Emerging Atmosphere, Underwater & Space Challenges) will promote Open Science practices and play active role in the materialization of the EOSC ecosystem by efficiently engaging large scientific and professional communities; actively contributing to the technological, procedural, strategic and business development of EOSC.

NEANIAS, by taking the principles of open innovation into account is working rapidly on developing the services regarding the Underwater, Atmospheric and Space thematic fields. In the frame of WP5, on defining the business cases, the potential end-users are involved in testing and designing each service of NEANIAS. By involving the end-users, NEANIAS services will be developed in align with the needs of end-users by meeting their specific requirements while testing and integrating their services in their everyday circumstances.

Within the framework of WP3, the NEANIAS objectives are to develop and integrate at EOSC three innovative cross-cutting services for tackling operationally atmospheric-related studies and engineering tasks towards engaging several user communities linked to the atmosphere including: meteorologists, industrial air pollutant emitters, ecologists, rural urban planners and air quality authorities, geohazards, civil protection, insurance, health agencies. A variety of sensors deployed in satellites, aerial (manned or unmanned) and terrestrial platforms are currently operationally employed to monitor the atmosphere.

In the last decade, millimetric radioastronomy has been the spearhead of multiple breakthrough discoveries that have improved significantly our knowledge of the Universe, with instruments such as ALMA comparable to the best optical and infrared telescopes in terms of sensitivity and angular resolution. But we are on the edge of a new revolution. The Square-Kilometre Array (SKA), an international collaborative project involving more than 100 scientific and technological partners from 20 countries, will become the largest radio interferometer ever built.
