eHeroes is a European Commission funded Framework Programme 7 project.
The eHEROES project aims at characterizing the environment in space, in order to provide useful information for planning and implementing space missions, whether manned or robotic. The project aims at realizing effective scientific exploitation of space data by combining different datasets from current robotic explorations of the Solar System with data from current and past space-based and complementing ground-based observations, together with new data sources from the latest missions. Besides, eHEROES aims at adding value to the data by better organizing and cross-linking them, by applying state-of-the-art models, and by assimilating the heliospheric data in space environment simulations.
The project team realizes a wide international synergy in the fields of solar and space physics, by including experts from 11 European countries, an institute partner from Russia, and collaborators from both the USA and Canada. The set of public deliverables which will be published on-line, will facilitate access to the higher-level data for those scientists who are not part of the team. The research work will be accompanied with wide dissemination activity.
