The ERICON project has been finalized on 31st May 2012. This website will be maintained as an archive and information platform of the project; updates will not be carried out. Only the future will show if enough commitment from interested governments can be generated towards a realisation of the AURORA; until then we will not able to answer questions about time-line, realization and potential job opportunities anymore.
