Using the EVN

The European VLBI Network (EVN), the most sensitive VLBI array in the world, is a network of radio telescopes located primarily in Europe and Asia, with additional antennas in South Africa, which performs very high angular resolution observations of cosmic radio sources. The EVN is an “open-skies” facility, i.e. all scientists, whether or not affiliated with EVN consortium institutes, can obtain observing time on the EVN via the standard peer-review selection process. The use of the network by astronomers who are not familiar with Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) is especially encourage.

All EVN users receive EVN observations, and absentee correlation of the data, and assistance from a JIVE Support Scientist. The Support Scientist is available to directly support scheduling the observation, correlation of the data, and post-correlation analysis.
