II.6.2. PPGF Fellowships

With the aim to promote the science of cosmology and other branches of astronomy, the Peter & Patricia Gruber Foundation has created the PPGF Fellowship Programme. Funded by the PPGF, one Fellowship will be awarded every year, the next one in 2009. A Fellowship amounts to US$50,000 and will be given as a stipend to cover travel, subsistence and research expenses during a postdoctoral appointment for a period which is typically of one year duration, but may be extended to two years. The Fellowship will be awarded to an extremely promising, young astrophysicist, working in any field of astrophysics, either theoretical, observational or experimental. There are no limitations on nationality, but preference will be given to applicants from countries in difficult economic conditions. For more details, see:

.


II.6.2.1. PPGF Fellowship 2009

The deadline of application for the PPGF Fellowship 2009 is 1 March 2009. Instructions for application are available at the IAU web page:




II.7. THE EC WORKING GROUP ON

THE INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF ASTRONOMY 2009



II.7.1. Status Report


The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s first inspirational telescopic observations. His discoveries shaped our worldview. To mark this occasion, the International Astronomical Union and the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization have initated what the United Nations has declared to be The International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009). Its purpose: to instill the same fascination with the night sky that Galileo felt, and to help people appreciate the wonders our Universe has to offer.


IYA2009 is a global endeavour, promoting astronomy and its contribution to society and culture. There is strong emphasis on education and public engagement. Excellent progress has already been made, with many thousands of people working towards making the Year a great success. This report outlines the status of its main projects and activities.
