SOLARNET Access Time: First call for proposals 2019

Proposals are hereby invited under the SOLARNET Trans-National Access Programme for observing time at GREGOR, SST, THEMIS, and VTT.

This call also includes observing time in the International Time Program (ITP). Proposals will be handled by the EAST TAC, a common European time allocation committee installed by the European Association for Solar Telescopes.

Typically, campaigns will be awarded for 10 observing days at each telescope. SOLARNET campaigns also include travel grants for going to the telescope.

In 2019, the SST will provide some of its time in service mode, thus not requiring visits by the investigators.

Certain criteria of eligibility related to the nationalities of the applicants apply. Data acquired in the SOLARNET Access Programme will become public one year after being delivered to the PI. Information on instrumentation and proposal details are available at the telescope web pages:

Proposals can be made for each individual telescope or for a combination of them. All applications will be assumed to be for both SOLARNET and ITP when possible.

All proposals should be sent via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and must be received by January 20, 2019.

SOLARNET is expected to be funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 824135.
The award of SOLARNET observing time is contingent on the signing process currently underway being concluded.
