As part of its H2020 program, The European Commission has established the AENEAS project to develop a design for the large-scale analysis infrastructure astronomers will need to extract scientific results from SKA data. This infrastructure is currently envisioned to be organized in the form of a global network of SKA Regional Centres. The ultimate ambition is to open the ability to access and use SKA data products to the widest range of researchers, beyond just experts and traditional radio astronomers. Input from the international astronomical community will be a crucial part of developing the requirements and design for these Regional Centres.
With this survey, we are soliciting your help in gathering these inputs. In the following questions, we would like to understand the ways in which you currently interact with your astronomy data and how you see these changing in the future. We will use this information to guide our recommendations for the design of a European SKA Regional Centre. All responses will be kept strictly confidential. If you are wiling to potentially be contacted for followup questions, please indicate this fact by providing your contact information below.
