VLT/VLTI Instruments Science Verification

An integral part of the commissioning of a new instrument at the VLT is the Science Verification phase. SV programmes will include a set of typical scientific observations that should verify and demonstrate to the community the capabilities of the new instrument in the operational framework of the VLT Observatory. Please refer to the VLT Science Verification Policy and Procedures document for details.
