First Announcement

Dear Principal Investigator,
ESA and EUMETSAT are pleased to inform you of the current plans to launch the first MetOp satellite on 30 June 2006, from Baikonur, using a Soyuz launcher.
Also, and in line with the EPS/MetOp Research Announcement of Opportunity (RAO), we are happy to confirm that the first Workshop will take place at ESRIN (Frascati, Italy), from 15 May 2006 pm till 17 May 2006 am.
The aim of the Workshop, open to EPS/MetOp RAO PIs and their co-Investigators, is to present researchers with the latest information about the mission,including status of the satellite, instruments and ground segment. We are also kindly asking each PI to present an overview of the purpose and plans of their approved project, in order to create an awareness amongst the community.
