IAU is funding 100 Special projects promoting Astronomy

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) was founded in 1919. Its mission is to promote and safeguard the science of astronomy in all its aspects through international cooperation. Its individual members — structured into DivisionsCommissions, and Working Groups — are professional astronomers from all over the world, at the Ph.D. level and beyond, who are active in professional research and education in astronomy. The IAU has 12461 members. The Individual Members Directory contains 9898 names in 101 countries worldwide (These Individual Members are labeled as “active” in the IAU database: they have a valid, public email, and are affiliated to at least one Division.). Of those 79 are National Members. In addition, the IAU collaborates with various scientific organizations all over the world.

The IAU100 Task Force is issuing a call for proposals for Special Projects in support of IAU100 Goals at either a local or national level. An IAU100 Special Project is a highlighted astronomy-oriented activity that supports the IAU100 Goals under one or more of the IAU100 Flasgship Programmes, and will be implemented at a local or national level. The IAU100 Task Force will provide seed money support not exceeding 2500 EUR for IAU100 Special Projects.
