After Phase A and during the pre-Phase B, the MOSAIC design concept has been consolidated, following collaborative work between the Consortium and ESO. The ESO Council approved on Tuesday Dec. 7th the proposed MOSAIC Construction Agreement which will be signed between the CNRS and ESO in March 2022. Phase B will officially start with the MOSAIC kickoff in June next year. Still, since the project is ready to move forward, an internal kickoff in February will set the real start of the Preliminary Design and Technology Completion phase.
MOSAIC is now a reality and the scientific community will benefit at the horizon 2030 of the only ELT instrument which will open a large discovery space for the science cases where statistics plays a key role.
