The OPTICON Trans-National Access 2013B Call for Proposals is now open, with TNG important news.

CTAC 2013B is now open and will close on 28 February 2013. Please see the CTAC 2013B page here. This information is also linked from the Trans-National Access page.

TNG contribution to this transnational project is starting this time increased from 7 to 14 nights per semester. This will increase substantially the access to TNG from non Italian institutions.

But, to ensure equitable and competitive review of all eligible proposals for time at the TNG and all other European telescopes, the TNG Board also decided that ALL non-Italian proposals MUST be submitted through the OPTICON common proposal and evaluation system.

Only proposal with Italian PI affiliation and at least 50% of Italian Co-Is will be accepted in the usual INAF-TAC call for proposals.
