OPTICON FP7 (2009-2012) WP11 - Enhancing Community Skills: Strengthening Skills

Please note this page is for historical reference only as OPTICON FP7 (2009-2012) is complete.

The objectives of this WP are to teach the skills necessary to use state-of-the-art European astronomical infrastructures, to develop the user community regardless of nationality and to enable both established and new communities to participate fully in the use and development of the newest large scale facilities.

WP11.1 - Community Development

WP leader: Michel Dennefeld

This WP will organise activities transferring knowledge from experienced astronomers familiar with forefront observatories to new users (young scientists, or scientists from the new member states). These activities will include technical schools and workshops organised in leading institutes or observatories and short term exchanges of engineers or scientists.
