International Time Programme (ITP)

Description

About 5% of the observing time in all telescopes of Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory and STELLA Robotic telescopes is also offered for International Time Program (ITP), which is allocated by the International Scientific Committee (CCI). Calls for ITP proposals occur once a year.

Requirements to book

Proposals should be international in their range of participants and are expected to involve astronomers from at least three of the European countries that are signatories to the Agreements for Cooperation in Astrophysics. Moreover, astronomers from scientific institutions from any o ther country in the world can be included
