HEMERA is a balloon infrastructure project, funded by the European Commission within its programme Horizon 2020. The project is coordinated by the French space agency CNES and involves 13 partners from several European countries and Canada. The Swedish National Space Board is one of the partners with a main task to organize ad execute one Call for Ideas and two Calls for Proposals.
The HEMERA project will offer free of charge balloon flights to the user community. Six zero pressure balloon flight campaigns and several smaller sounding balloon flights are foreseen from mid-2019 to late 2021.
The first Call for Proposals for flights in 2019 and 2020 is now open.
The deadline for responses is October 15, 2018.
