ESA Calls for Proposals for Medium-size Mission
This announcement is on behalf of Luigi Colangeli of the European Space Agency:
The European Space Agency’s Director of Science and Robotic Exploration solicits from the broad scientific community proposals for the competitive selection of mission concepts to be candidate for the implementation of a medium-size, or M-class, mission (M4) for launch in 2025.
Interested parties planning to submit a proposal are requested to send a letter of intent by 12 noon CEST on 16 September 2014. Full proposals will be due on 15 January 2015, with selection of missions for study expected in March 2015.
This call is open to proposals for both European-only missions and missions in collaboration with international partners. The selected mission will be implemented in the framework of ESA's Cosmic Vision plan. The proposals submitted in response to the current call can cover any science theme and topic of relevance to the Cosmic Vision plan. These science themes and topics are laid out in the ESA brochure Cosmic Vision: Space Science for Europe 2015-2025.
