NEXPReS was a three-year project aimed at further developing e-VLBI services of the European VLBI Network (EVN), with the goal of incorporating e-VLBI into every astronomical observation conducted by the EVN.


NEXPReS is comprised of 15 astronomical institutes and National Research and Education Network (NREN) providers and has four main technical activities:

  • Cloud Correlation
  • Dynamically Provisioned Network Resources
  • Computing in a Shared Infrastructure
  • Provisioning High-Bandwidth, High-Capacity Networked Storage

NEXPReS was an e‑Infrastructure project funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme under Grant Agreement RI‑261525.

NEXPReS, integrating VLBI and e-VLBI astronomy techniques, concludes three year project

11 Jul 2013
The NEXPReS project successfully concluded on 30 June 2013, after three years of technology development for Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). The aim of NEXPReS was to eliminate the distinction between traditional disk-based VLBI and real-time e-VLBI, by incorporating elements of each into every observation by the European VLBI Network.

Triggered e-EVN observations help pinpoint puzzling white dwarf

23 May 2013
The "triggered e-VLBI" capability of the European VLBI Network has aided an extremely precise measurement of the distance to a star system. This has allowed astronomers to finally solve a decade-old puzzle, confirming our understanding of the way exotic objects like black holes swallow the material they rip off the surface of nearby binary companion stars.
