Scientific Rationale

The next decade will see the beginning of operations of two of the largest survey telescopes that will revolutionize our understanding of the Universe. Euclid aims to map the Universe at optical and near-infrared wavelengths from space, and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) has similar scientific aims utilizing radio wavelength observations from two sites centred in South Africa and Australia.

This meeting aims to explore the synergies between the Euclid satellite mission and the SKA. The meeting will cover possible scientific and technological synergies and is open to the worldwide astronomical community. The meeting will be held over three days, and will accommodate approximately 100 participants. The registration fee is £125.
