Reponse to Call for Ideas for Flexi-missions

Reponse to Call for Ideas for Flexi-missions

15 February 2000

At the beginning of October 1999, ESA issued a call for ideas for the next flexi-missions (F2 and F3). A large number of proposals have been received and are being evaluated.Flexi-missions were introduced into the Horizons 2000 implementation concept in 1997 to increase the flexibility of the programme, basically by splitting each of the two Medium-size missions of Horizons 2000 into two Flexi-missions (F-missions).

Three to four mission proposals will then be competitively selected via Peer Group reviews and in full consultation with the advisory structure of the Science Programme. The selected missions will undergo an assessment phase lasting from 1 March to end May 2000.
