About us

ORP optical and infrared schools are a community training programme, which delivers expert knowledge in infrastructure use and development.

The main programme consists of a yearly NEON Observing school that gives hands-on observing experience to young astronomers at a professional telescope. The programme also includes other schools concentrating on different aspects of observational astronomy and life-long learning. In addition, the ORP workpackage WP5 JA4 Training organises schools at radio and sub-millimetre wavebands and also in different techniques, for example, in adaptive optics and interferometry. You can find more information on the activities on the main ORP Training pages.
