Notification of a forthcoming Call for Proposals for a medium-sized mission with a possible launch in 2022
08 July 2010At the end of July 2010, the Director of Science and Robotic Exploration plans to issue a Call for Proposals for medium-sized (M-class) missions, as part of the Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 Plan - ESA's long term scientific plan.
The Call is planned to lead to the selection of one M-class mission for a launch opportunity currently foreseen around late 2022.
This early notification is to inform the scientific community of the forthcoming Call and to provide a rough timeline for the main milestones associated with it. The exact dates for these milestones will be provided when the Call is released at the end of this month.
The full details and documentation for the Call will be posted on this website (http://sci.esa.int), together with the dedicated web forms for submitting the Letters of Intent and Proposals.
