17-01-2012IAU Office of Astronomy for Development Announces Opportunity to host Regional Nodes

In January 2008 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) set out to develop a visionary decadal strategic plan entitled “Astronomy for the Developing World”. At the heart of the implementation of this plan is the creation of a central coordinating “Office of Astronomy for Development” (OAD). The IAU Strategic Plan envisages that a number of regional nodes will be established gradually throughout the decade, supported mainly by external funds, such as in-kind contributions by the host organisations. The OAD will work towards establishing such regional nodes across the world.

The OAD has recently announced the opportunity to host regional nodes. Details of the announcement can be found here
