Call for a Medium-size and a Fast mission opportunity in ESA's Science Programme

Phase-1 proposal submission form


As described in the Call for a Medium-size and a Fast mission opportunity in ESA's Science Programme document, proposals in response to this Call must be submitted in two phases. Phase-1 proposals will be subject to a first technical and scientific screening by ESA (for the mission profile and implementation aspects) and by a peer review committee under the responsibility of the ESA Scientific Advisory Structure (for the scientific goals). Proposers whose proposals pass this Phase-1 screening will be invited to a workshop to discuss the feasibility of their ideas. They will then be invited to submit a Phase-2 proposal.

Phase-1 proposals must be submitted using the form below. Only pdf files will be accepted; files must not be locked or protected; the maximum file size accepted is 50 MB. Full details of the format and content for the proposal are given in the Call for a Medium-size and a Fast mission opportunity in ESA's Science Programme document (see Documentation links on the Home page).

Please note that after selecting the file you wish to submit you must wait for an on-screen message indicating that the file has been successfully uploaded before finishing the submission process.

An acknowledgement of receipt will be sent to the proposer at the email address provided, upon successful submission of the proposal.

The deadline for receipt of Phase-1 proposals was 14 February 2022, 12:00 (noon) CET

Late submissions will not be considered. Phase-2 proposals that have not been preceded by a Phase-1 proposal will not be considered.
