European Interferometry Initiative: Fizeau Exchange Visitors Program

Published: 19 Oct 2019

The Fizeau exchange visitors program in optical interferometry funds visits of researchers to institutes of their choice within the European Community to perform collaborative work and training on one of the active topics of the European Interferometry Initiative. The visits typically last for one month, and strengthen the network of astronomers engaged in technical, scientific and training work on optical/infrared interferometry including ESO's VLTI. The programme is open to all levels of astronomers (from PhD students to tenured staff), with priority given to PhD students and young postdocs. Non-EU based missions will only be funded if considered essential by the Fizeau Committee. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to seek partial support from their home or host institutions.

The deadline for applications is November 15. Fellowships can be awarded for missions to be carried out between January and July 2020. Further information and application forms can be found from the programme's website. The programme is funded by OPTICON/H2020.
