The goal of the policy forum is to study how to harmonize joint and efficient scheduling, operation and interoperability of the various Multi-Wave length/Multi-Messenger telescopes. This global question will be addressed through 4 main strategic topics:
  1. Joint time allocation,
  2. observing strategies for MM campaigns,
  3. data access and sharing, and
  4. general policies of common interest (towards next generation ESFRI RI).

The study is based on the four ESFRI RI involved in ASTERICS (CTA, E-ELT, KM3NET and SKA) but will also involve many other European astronomical facilities.
