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 objects and potentially hazardous asteroids using two automated dedicated 1–2 metre telescopes located in both hemispheres and other facilities available to the members of the network.[2] The Minor Planet Center directly credits EURONEAR with the discovery of several minor planets in 2008.[1]
