Starting this year, funding will be available again for travel to one of the European ALMA Regional Centre nodes in Europe, for ALMA users who need face-to-face support for their ALMA projects. Users wishing to apply for MARCUs funding should fill out the form in addition to submitting a Helpdesk ticket that is required to arrange the ARC node visit. Face-to-face visits to ARC nodes can be arranged for assistance with data reduction, proposal preparation, and archive research projects.
MARCUs funding available in 2017
The funding is provided through the MARCUs (Mobility for ARC Users) work package within RadioNet (http://www.radionet-eu.org), an EC funded project, which brings together the premier radio astronomical facilities in Europe to serve a growing research community across all of Europe and beyond.
