The University of Graz joins the EST Canarian Foundation

The University of Graz has officially become a member of the EST Foundation for the next two years. With this addition, the entity now comprises 10 European institutions from 8 countries.


The EST project concluded the year 2023 with an important news: the EST Canarian Foundation is now expanded with the recent inclusion of the University of Graz, representing Austria. The University of Graz becomes the tenth European institution to join the Foundation as a full-fledged member for the next two years. The decision was formalised during the meeting of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees on 21 December 2023.

Dr. Philippe Bourdin is the liaison person chosen by the University of Graz to represent the institution in the Board of Trustees, the main governing body of the EST Foundation.

This development not only signifies the addition of a new country to the EST Foundation -currently eight, including Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK-, but also indicates the growth of the consortium, which will facilitate the fulfillment of the objectives set to achieve the construction of the largest solar telescope in Europe.
