The Call for Proposals for the East Asian VLBI Network for the 2020A semester is open. From the 2020A semester, CfP for the KVN and VERA Array (KaVA) is merged into the EAVN CfP. Please refer to the EAVN website for more details about the array's specification, available observation modes, and how to submit proposals.
LOFAR for Space Weather (LOFAR4SW) is a design study that addresses all conceptual and technical aspects required to upgrade the LOFAR radio telescope, system-wide, to take on a parallel role as a highly innovative new facility that enables large-scale monitoring projects generating unique data for the European (and worldwide) space weather research community, with great [...]
RadioNet sponsor of the SKA VLBI Key Science Projects and Operations Workshop, Jodrell Bank, 14-17.10.2019
The World’s Eye on the Sky SKA-VLBI Key Science Projects and Operations Workshop The VLBI community proposed to make the phase I SKA telescopes available for global VLBI observations. The VLBI Science Working Group for the SKA, with support from the EC-funded JUMPING JIVE project, worked out the technical requirements and defined the interfaces needed for realising SKA-VLBI. The [...]
The COSPAR event E1.17 on radio galaxies, to be held at the next COSPAR general assembly, 15-23 August 2020 in Sydney/AU. With highly energetic relativistic jets that sometimes reach a few Megaparsecs, radio galaxies are fundamental actors in theories of black hole growth and downsizing, and in the evolution of their host galaxies. This event is [...]
IRAM is seeking a qualified candidate for a position in the NOEMA Science Operations Group (SOG). The candidate is expected to invest 50% of the time on z-GAL, an international project aimed at investigating the nature and physical properties of the brightest submillimeter galaxies in the Herschel surveys (H-ATLAS and HerMES). The candidate will also [...]
Today the ERIS2019 has started in Gothenburg/Sweden, hosted by Onsala Space Observatory at Chalmers University of Technology. This school is the eighth of a series of summer schools supported by RadioNet. ERIS2019 will provide a week of lectures and tutorials on how to achieve scientific results from radio interferometry.

The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the world’s most sensitive facility for millimeter/submillimeter astronomical observations, and will soon be fully operational in all of the originally planned bands. Since its first observations, ALMA has routinely delivered groundbreaking scientific results that span nearly all areas of astrophysics. Following conferences in Puerto Varas (Chile, 2012), Tokyo (Japan, 2014), and Indian Wells (USA, 2016), the ALMA partnership is [...]
My research field deals with the formation of high mass stars. I am interested in the role of already formed high mass stars (and their associated ionized - HII - regions) on the possible formation of a new generation of (high mass) stars. The many available infrared and submillimetre surveys have revealed the important of [...]
News at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy/Bonn: Neutrino produced in a cosmic collider far away- Link between IceCube neutrino event and distant radio galaxy resolved
An international team of researchers led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, studied high-resolution radio observations of the source between 2009 and 2018, before and after the neutrino event. The results are published in „Astronomy & Astrophysics“, October 02, 2019. Read the article here
