Summary
    Astroparticle Physics has become a mature and well accepted science discipline. Demonstrated  by many world class projects currently developed and run by European Astroparticle physicists, Europe as a whole is the main promoter and leading the field.  As  a merit of ASPERA (AStroparticle Physics European Research Area network ),  the ERA-NET in Astroparticle Physics funded in the context of FP6 for 3 years starting in July 2006, the community as well as the supporting funding agencies are becoming more and more organized. In order to allow a deepening and broadening of the successful ERA-NET work started with ASPERA in FP6, the extended consortium here presents a work programme   for a second ERA-NET phase (ASPERA-2). Directly linked to the common action plan developed in ASPERA-1.
