HEMERA call for proposals

Balloon launch Esrange

The HEMERA project will offer free of charge balloon flights to scientific teams in the European Union, Canada, and associated countries.

HEMERA is a balloon infrastructure project, funded by the European Commission within its programme Horizon2020.  In this programme, 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 concerning balloon flights in 2019 and 2020 is now open. The deadline is October 15, 2018.

The HEMERA project is coordinated by the French space agency CNES and involves 13 partners from several European countries and Canada, including SSC (Swedish Space Corporation). The Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA) is one of the partners with the main task to organize and execute one Call for Ideas and two Calls for Proposals.
