This "Advanced Technologies for the Exploration of the Universe and its Components" programme aims to make a qualitative leap in Spanish participation in the next generation of leading international projects in the area of Astrophysics and High-Energy Physics, with a particular emphasis on the more technological aspects. In particular, the following lines of action (LA) have been identified as areas of collaboration for the development of the programme:

  • LA-1: Development of state-of-the-art instruments for future particle and nuclear physics experiments.
  • LA-2: Development of state-of-the-art astrophysics instrumentation for Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS), European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) astronomy projects, and space missions.
  • LA-3: Gravitational wave experiments and multi-messenger astronomy.
  • LA-4: Large-scale astronomical mapping.
  • LA-5: Direct searches for dark matter.
  • LA-6: Neutrino physics.
  • LA-7: Space exploration with small satellites.
  • LA-8: Computation, big data and artificial intelligence.

The programme was initially launched with the collaboration of the Autonomous Communities of Catalonia, Andalusia, Cantabria, Valencia, Aragon and the Balearic Islands by signing a framework agreement with the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.

Subsequently, the Autonomous Community of Madrid joined following the Agreement of the Council for Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy of 22 June 2022.
