PROBA2 Guest Investigator Programme
PROBA2, the technologically advanced ESA micro-satellite studying the Sun, has been in orbit since November 2009 (http://proba2.oma.be). Onboard, both the EUV imager SWAP and the EUV/UV radiometer LYRA have been acquiring unique data for more than three years. During that time, 25 PROBA2 Guest Investigators have visited the PROBA2 Science Center at the Royal Observatory of Belgium, in Brussels, to efficiently use PROBA2 data in their research.
A new Call for Ideas for the PROBA2 Guest Investigator Programme is now open for the period October 2013 and May 2014.
Selected proposers will be invited to spend up to a few months with the PI teams to obtain expert knowledge on the instruments and to participate in the daily operations of SWAP and LYRA. Each guest investigator will be reimbursed for travel, accommodation and living expenses. Additional details about the PROBA2 Guest Investigator programme and application information can be found on the PROBA2 website at:
