Abstract: The primary objective of the Exoplanet Atmosphere New Emission Transmission Spectra Analysis (ExoplANETS-A) project is to establish new knowledge on exoplanet atmospheres by exploiting archived space data (Hubble, Spitzer, Kepler) building on the state-of the art knowledge and long term experience within our team from seven institutes. This will be achieved through: the development of novel data reduction techniques based on a causal pixel model; the development of novel parameter retrieval methods to e.g. simultaneously deal with transmission and emission observations; establishing new knowledge on exoplanet atmospheres; establishing new insight on the influence of the host star on the planet atmosphere; the dissemination of knowledge, using online, web-based platforms. The project, funded under the EU Horizon-2020 program, started in January 2018 and has a duration of three years. Here we present an overview of the project, the initiatives taken in the field of data reduction and parameter retrieval with some early results.
