On December 21st, 1993, the Joint Institute for VLBI in Europe (JIVE) was created by the European Consortium for VLBI. Its deed as a Foundation under Dutch law was signed by the directors of five European radio observatories, inspired by the vision of Richard Schilizzi, who became its first director. He recognised the potential of [...]
Dear VLBA users, As most of you probably know, the VLBA antenna on the island of Saint Croix was hit by a pair of hurricanes in September, 2017. After 6 months, primarily in restoring electrical power and internet services to the island, the antenna was returned to service. The VLBA received disaster relief funding to [...]
The space VLBI Mission RadioAstron, led by the Astro Space Center (ASC) of Lebedev Physical Institute, provides a range of specific and unique capabilities for detecting and imaging sources of cosmic radio emission at the highest angular resolution. The optimal utilization of these capabilities relies on the construction and execution of a balanced scientific program [...]
The High Energy Phenomena in Relativistic Outflows (HEPRO) conference series are devoted to the discussion of the latest and more relevant observational, phenomenological, and theoretical developments in the field of high-energy astrophysics related to systems displaying relativistic winds and jets. The next edition will take place in Barcelona on July 9-12, 2019. The registration period is from February [...]
18 months after RadioNet started the management and the task leaders reported to an independent reviewer appointed by the European Commission on the progress made in the different RadioNet activities, such as Transnational Access, Joint Research Activities or Networking. While this is a requirement to obtain continued funding, RadioNet viewed this as a welcome [...]
