A deep sea neutrino telescope located at a depth of 2475m in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Toulon. Also a cabled deep sea observatory for earth and sea sciences. The observation of high energy neutrinos will open a new window on the universe. The primary aim of the experiment is to use neutrinos as a tool to study particle acceleration mechanisms in energetic astrophysical objects such as active galactic nuclei and gamma-ray bursts, which may also shed light on the origin of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. At somewhat lower energies, non-baryonic dark matter (WIMPs) may be detected through the neutrinos produced when gravitationally captured WIMPs annihilate in the cores of the Earth and the Sun, and neutrino oscillations can be measured by studying distortions in the energy spectrum of upward-going atmospheric neutrinos. ANTARES is constructing and deploying a detector with a surface area of 0.1 km2, a first step toward a kilometric scale detector. The ANTARES collaboration is composed of around 150 engineers, technicians and physicists from numerous institutes.

The Observatory of Yebes is operated by the Instituto Geografico Nacional (a Directorate General of the Ministry for Public Works, ?Ministerio de Fomento?). The site is at a height of approximately 930m above sea level in the Guadalajara province (about 80km from Madrid). It includes four main scientific installations: A. The 40m radiotelescope B. The 13.2m radiotelescope, part of the RAEGE Network (Red Atlantica de Estaciones Geodinamicas y Espaciales) C. The anechoic chamber D. The gravimetry station With three geodetic techniques (radioastronomy, gravimetry, and permanent station for reception of the global navigation satellite system, GNSS), the Observatory of Yebes is at present the fundamental geodetic station in Spain. The design and construction of a new generation Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) system, considered in this strategic plan, will complement the station with a fourth geodetic measurement technique (there are only 7 such 4-technique geodetic stations in the world). The Yebes Observatory is very well framed in the international context. The 40m radiotelescope is one of the most important nodes of the European VLBI Network (EVN), and it is a observing station of the International VLBI Service (IVS). The 13.2m radiotelescope is part of the RAEGE, which is itself one of the most important components of the VLBI2010 Geodetic Observing System (VGOS) and of the Geodetic Global Observing Systems (GGOS). The gravimetry station, designed for gravimeter intercomparisons, is being inserted in the International Gravity Reference System (IGRS). The observatory also hosts a very well equipped laboratory for the development of state-of-the-art low noise amplifiers, a laboratory for the development of radio receivers. All installations of the Yebes Observatory are available for the use of the scientific community. This RI is an ICTS (Unique Scientific and Technological Infrastructure), included in the Spanish National Roadmap for RIs.
