A Uranus Orbiter with probe has been recommended as the top priority flagship-class mission by the US planetary science decadal survey (2022), aiming to make use of Jupiter gravity assist trajectories in the mid-2030s. ESA’s Voyage-2050 strategy (2021) also recommended that international partnership missions would provide a key mechanism for European participation in the exploration of the Ice Giants. This community meeting provides a forum to discuss the decadal survey recommendations, and to consider the challenges ahead for realising this ambitious partnership.
