A unique instrument for the biggest telescope


The MOSAIC collaboration is pleased to announce the Phase B1 Kick-off Meeting, which will take place in Paris on March 14th-15th. The management meeting will take place in the afternoon of the 14/03, with the presence of ESO representatives. The 15/03 will be dedicated to our internal technical and scientific meetings, including splinters. The meeting will take place in hybrid mode, both for the plenary sessions and splinters. The Agenda can be found here.

This meeting starts the Phase B1 of the ELT-MOSAIC project, that will last for 18 months and will go until the Specifications and Architecture Review (SAR). This phase is intended to consolidate the architecture of the instrument and the availability of the resources, an important step for this ELT project conducted by an international consortium including 22 institutional partners located in 13 countries, led by the CNRS. The list of parties includes: University of Vienna (Austria), Universidade de Sao Paulo and LNA (Brazil), Universities of Helsinki and Turku (Finland), LAM, GEPI and IRAP (France), AIP and Heidelberg University (Germany), INAF (Italy), NOVA (Netherlands), F. Ciencias and CAUP (Portugal), University of Madrid and IAA (Spain), Universities of Lund, Stockholm and Uppsala (Sweden), University of Geneva and EPFL (Switzerland), STFC/ATC, Durham University and Oxford RAL (UK), and University of Michigan (USA). More than 350 scientists and engineers participate into this effort.
