ASTERICS (Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster) brings together astronomers and astroparticle physicists of 22 institutes in Europe to help Europe’s world-leading observatories work together to find common solutions to their Big Data challenges, their interoperability and scheduling, and their data access, searching for cross-cutting solutions with mutual and wide-ranging benefit to all concerned. ASTERICS is a four year project, funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework programme. The facilities supported by ASTERICS include SKA (Square Kilometre Array), CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array), KM3NeT (Kilometre cubed Neutrino Telescope), E-ELT (European Extremely Large Telescope). ASTERICS aims to open up multi messenger astronomy to all scientists and the public through the Virtual Observatory and the citizen science work. I will draw a picture of the landscape in which ASTERICS operates and the possible interaction with the Very Large Volume Neutrino Telescope community. Attention will be given to emerging opportunities for the Neutrino community and how these can be recognised or created.
