Work Context

ORP (OPTICON-RadioNet Pilot) is a 4 year European astronomical infrastructure network project, bringing together two multi-messenger astronomical observation communities and their respective research infrastructures, RadioNet and OPTICON. The ORP project aims to launch a coordinated and coherent access plan to a set of infrastructures in radio and optical astronomy, including a harmonization and simplification of access procedures, allowing the development of these infrastructures and their capacities, bringing together the communities and supporting the training of astronomers, in order to strengthen Europe's position as a leader in the field.
Laboratory of Astrophysics of Marseille (LAM) is a leading European space laboratory combining astrophysical research and instrument development for large ground-based and space telescopes. LAM researchers conduct international programs combining observation, analysis, modeling and theory. LAM technical skills in instrumentation development are based on: in-situ expertise in optical and mechanical design, technology facilities unique in Europe and a center of astrophysical data (CESAM). LAM thus manages instrument development projects from their early design to operation and data analysis, in partnership with major funding agencies (CNES, ESA, ESO, NASA).
