SOLARNET is pleased to announce its first call for proposals of its Training Programme.

Solar telescopes GREGOR and VTT

Our purpose is to instruct students and young postdocs in the capabilities and operation of the German solar facilities at the observatory, by giving them the opportunity to

  • run real observations at GREGOR, the largest solar telescope in Europe
  • calibrate data by learning how to use the existing data pipelines, Python and deep learning techniques
  • learn how to complement ground-based observations with space-based observations
  • experience the observers’ life up the mountain for a week

through different lectures and experimental activities (programme in SOLARNET webpage available soon).
