On March 2009 the EUI suite has been selected (together with other 9 instuments) to be part of the scientific payload of Solar Orbiter mission. This important decision was takes after that the implementation of the NASA Sentinels mission was delayed. This lead to a re-definitin of the SO mission, also considering the fact that NASA scheduled the Solar Probe Plus mission in the same time-frame as SO.

The result of the panel was that, with only minor adjustments, the payload selection is still valid. More informations about the selected instruments can be found here
