IAU OAD Annual Call for Proposals 2015

The IAU Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) has issued its 4th annual call for proposals for astronomy-for-development projects. The IAU has earmarked €110 000 for OAD projects to be selected in 2015 and implemented in 2016. This is an open call for project proposals, with individual project grants ranging from about €500 to about €15 000.

The three focus areas of the call are:

  1. Astronomy for Universities and Research
  2. Astronomy for Children and Schools
  3. Astronomy for the Public

This year a new format for the call is being used which will streamline the applications process and allow for greater interaction with the OAD through an optional “Expression of Interest” channel. The OAD looks forward to engaging with potential proposers and helping develop and realise ideas relating to using astronomy to stimulate global sustainable development.
