AHEAD2020 Announcement of opportunity
The 3rd announcement of opportunity of AHEAD2020 has opened. We kindly ask you, should you have access to an institutional/department or national level mailing list associated to your lab or university, to spread the announcement below.
Please let us know, if you are able to spread the message and if possible, the number of people reached (at your best knowledge). This will help us to compile the relevant section of the next periodic report.

### AHEAD2020 Announcement of Opportunity Cycle 3 ###
The AHEAD2020 (Integrated Activities for High Energy Astrophysics*) calls for a program of transnational visits and remote access activities to be performed starting ~mid April 2022. The main objectives are:
1) fostering new or strengthening existing collaborations on science and technology topics in high energy astrophysics (visitor program);
2) provide access free of cost to selected European astronomical institutes and data centres for support in high energy and multimessenger data analysis, as long as computational astrophysics.
3) providing access free of cost to some of the best European ground test and calibration facilities relevant for high-energy astrophysics.
Visitor grants include full reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses. To face possible restrictions to travel as effect of the pandemic, the possibility of remote access for a number of services in the area of data analysis, tools and computational astrophysics will be provided.
AO-3 Calls Opening: 20 January 2022
