EURONEAR, the European Near Earth Asteroids Research, is a research project which aims to develop a research network which will search, discover and monitor near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) and potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) using two automated dedicated 1–2 metre telescopes located in both hemispheres and other facilities available to the members of the network.[1] As of 2016, the Minor Planet Center directly credits EURONEAR with the discovery of 8 minor planets in 2008 (see also Category:Discoveries by EURONEAR).[2]
