As an European association of professional solar observers, JOSO (Joint
Organisation for Solar Observations) has organised a working group (WG7) in
order to contribute to the preparation of scientists for this `European'
eclipse event. We present here the main projects of this small group:
diffusion of practical information to scientific teams (planning support,
contact addresses in welcoming countries, with an emphasis on Eastern Europe),
promotion of collaborations, coordination of a basic experiment by amateurs and
professionals along the totality band, and diffusion of an educational
reference publication to help local non-specialised scientists and authorities
across the continent to provide reliable information to the public.
