Opticon Call for proposals open. Deadline 28, February 2011

Call for Proposals to be supported via the OPTICON Trans-National Access programme in semester 2011B.
Deadline 28 February 2011.

The call for observing time at night time telescopes supported by the OPTICON Trans-National Access Programme is now open with a deadline of 1200 UT on 28 February 2011. The semester is centred on August 2011 to January 2012, but there are small variations at some telescopes to accommodate their normal semesters and to maximise scheduling flexibility.

Proposals must meet certain EU and OPTICON rules for formal eligibility concerning team membership. Broadly speaking, the PI and at least half of the Co-I’s must be working at Institutions from the EU or EU associated countries but which are outside the country/ies which own the telescope. Please also note the prohibition on projects which could be applied for by the PI using the national mechanisms open to them. If in doubt, contact the Project Scientist for clarification.
