The European program OPTICON-RadioNet Pilot (ORP), has been put in place by the European Commission. The ORP project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101004719. The Opticon RadioNet Pilot project offers Transnational Access (TA) to a dozen optical and radio/mm/submm telescopes.
Further information on the participating infrastructures is given on the ORP TA web page.
Within this program, IRAM is committed to offering Transnational Access (TA) for scientists from all over the world. All TA-supported projects that are scheduled at the NOEMA interferometer or at the 30-meter telescope must acknowledge the support from the European
As part of this initiative, travel funds are available to support visits of TA eligible astronomers engaged in research with the IRAM facilities. Travels to the 30-meter telescope for observations (contact: C. Kramer) and to IRAM Grenoble for the reduction of NOEMA data (contact: J.M. Winters) may be supported. Whether or not travel is possible depends of course also on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Principal Investigators of IRAM proposals eligible for TA funding will be informed individually.
