Take a closer look at... the SPIDI project

The "Star-Inner Disk-Planets Interactions" (SPIDI) project aims at detecting nascent inner planets still embedded in the circumstellar disk of young stars and orbiting close to the magnetospheric truncation radius. The poster will describe the motivations and recent progresses that led to the SPIDI project and the approaches that we will follow to address the challenge of isolating a planetary signal buried in the large variability of young stars induced by the magnetic star-disk interaction. This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 742095)
