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 [...]
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 [...]
Project status update - Board teleconference. Event webpage
The NRAO is recruiting two scientific staff positions to be located in Socorro, NM, the home of the Domenici Science Operations Center, which houses the scientific, engineering, technical, computer and support staff for both the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). The Science Operations Center also houses [...]
RadioNet supports a 3-day workshop 'The HI/Story of the Nearby Universe' in Groningen on September 10-12, at ASTRON in Dwingeloo to celebrate the career of Thijs van der Hulst and to look forward to the scientific exploitation of forthcoming HI imaging surveys with the SKA pathfinders and precursors. An attractive scientific program includes ten invited [...]
Topical collection of Solar Physics journal “Solar radio physics from the chromosphere to near Earth” was completed and published. The volume contains 16 articles and provides a snapshot of the developments and challenges that were discussed during the CESRA workshop. The 2016 CESRA workshop had a special emphasis on the complementarity of current and future [...]
On 24 July 2018, all parts of the final H2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 have been updated. The changes related to 2019 (topics, dates and budget) are explained in the Participant Portal. The full ‘Topics Descriptions’ for Calls in 2020 will be announced in Summer 2019. The details on individual calls can be fund here.
The new RadioNet newsletter has been just issued. Information about the supported events, recent triumph of the multi-messenger astronomy, EC policy news and more can be found here!
A triumph of multi-messenger astronomy On September 22nd 2017, an energetic neutrino hit an atom of the gigantic cubic kilometer sized IceCube neutrino observatory in Antarctica. That atom, as a result, emitted a myon particle, which in turn resulted in a cascade of photons of visible light. These photons could traverse the extremely transparent [...]
VLBI proposals for observing at 3mm wavelength (86 GHz) using: the VLBA, GBT*, EFFELSBERG, PICO VELETA, ONSALA, METSAEHOVI, YEBES and KVN telescopes should be submitted by 1 AUGUST 2018 (UT 21:00) Successful proposals will be considered for scheduling in GMVA Session I 2019 (4-9 April) or in a later session. ** Proposals for GMVA+ALMA [...]
