The Optical Infrared Co-ordination Network for astronomy brings together all the national and international agencies and organisations which fund, support, develop and operate Europe’s facilities for optical and infrared astronomy, both night-time -classical astronomy-and day-time -solar astronomy. OPTICON provides a framework allowing joint actions to improve the quality of Europe’s infrastructures, to train new astronomers, especially those from Central Europe, in modern new research methods, to develop innovative technologies to enhance research quality, to plan for future developments, and to work towards a strategic plan for Europe’s future research infrastructures.
The JMMC is the French Center for Infrared and Optical Interferometry. It provides support for the users of the astronomical interferometers currently in operation around the world.
Laboratoire Lagrange Laboratoire Lagrange
The LAGRANGE laboratory is a joint research unit (UMR 7293) depending on three agencies: CNRS, Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur and the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (UNS). It aims to develop multidisciplinary research activities in the field of astrophysics, mechanical and processing of signals and images as well as a major effort to offer courses related to these themes. Thematic teams revolve around the formation and evolution of planetary systems, solar and stellar physics, galaxies and cosmology, signal processing, and finally the non-linear dynamics.
Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur
The Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur has a remarkable architectural and scientific heritage, which is open to the public. But far from looking to the past, OCA remains an internationally recognized center for research in Earth Sciences and Astronomy.
L’ASHRA est une action transverse aux programmes thématiques en astronomie et soutient depuis de nombreuses années les développements des techniques Haute Résolution Angulaire.
The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Center for Scientific Research) is a government-funded research organization, under the administrative authority of France's Ministry of Research.
