Science Requirement Document (SDR)


The EST Science Advisory Group (SAG) has been working during the last months updating the EST Conceptual Design SRD prepared on 2010. 

The SRD compiles a number of science cases proposed by the SAG members, and by the community,  related to the different top science goals proposed for EST. Defining critical scientific driver for technical requirements is one of its main goals.


Full updated document is available here



The first update of the original EST SRD was presented to the international community during the first "EST Science Meeting" held at Giardini Naxos (Sicily) on June 11-15 2018. After that, the EST SAG carried pout an analysis of the outcome of the fruitful discussions and generated a second update of the SRD.


Presentations from the meeting are available:
