International Schools for Young Astronomers (ISYAs)

Director: Jean-Pierre de Greve

Educational activities are one of the essential tasks of the Union. The International Schools for Young Astronomers is a project within IAU Commission 46, Astronomy Education and Development.

The ISYA programme is generously supported by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (NASL).

ISYA seeks the participation of young astronomers mainly, but not exclusively, from astronomically developing countries. ISYA also seeks to broaden the participants' perspective on astronomy by lectures from an international faculty on selected topics of astronomy, seminars, practical exercises and observations, and exchange of experiences.
