Current Projects

The annual Call for Proposals reviews proposals for projects in the three Task Forces: Astronomy for Universities and Research (TF1), Astronomy for Children and Schools (TF2) and Astronomy for the Public (TF3).

In 2012, a total of 189 applications were filed. Since the budget for this 2012 Call for Proposals was € 90 000, only 10% of the recommendations (18 projects worldwide to be implemented in 2013) could be funded. More information on the 2013 projects can be found here.

The Call for Proposals in 2013 saw a 20% increase in demand: 230 applications were filed (54 for TF1, 113 for TF2, 63 for TF3), requesting a total of € 2 237 844 (€ 919 308 for TF1, € 864 731 for TF2, € 453 805 for TF3). Again, only 10% of the recommendations (23 projects worldwide to be implemented in 2014) could be funded. More information on the 2014 projects can be found here.
