The “European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures” (ESCAPE) brings together the astronomy, astroparticle, and particle physics communities. With this, ESCAPE puts together a cluster with ESFRI projects (SKA, CTA, KM3Net, EST, ELT, HL-LHC, FAIR) with aligned challenges of data-driven research, with demonstrated capabilities in addressing various stages of data workflow and concerned with fundamental research through complementary approaches. The project is led by Laboratoire d’Annecy de Physique des Particules (LAPP), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, PI: Giovanni Lamanna).

Role of AIP: AIP is involved in the ESCAPE work package “Open-source scientific Software and Service Repository” (OSSR), which is coordinated by Dr. Kay Graf at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU). Scientists at AIP contribute with a framework based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) or alternatives for the development of a classification engine for solar and stellar spectra. Different data sources will be used, specifically high-resolution spectra of the GREGOR solar telescope and the Swedish Solar Telescope as data of the European Solar Telescope (EST) is not yet available.
