The Network for Ultraviolet Astronomy

 

The Network for Ultraviolet Astronomy

 

 

The Network for UltraViolet Astrophysics (NUVA) is a pan-european network set-up to identify the needs of the astronomical community in the UV domain and eventually propose actions to structure it around new projects. It was first established in 2004 within  the OPTical Infrared Coordination Network for astronomy in the FP6 program and produced the European road-map for UV astronomy that was included in the ASTRONET report in 2008.

Currently, the NUVA activity has been moved into the recently created IAU working group of UV astronomy within Division B (Facilities, Technologies and Data Science) to elaborate a road map for UV astronomy at global scale that can exploit the synergies between all interested agencies and the academia to coordinate the development of UV mission at all funding levels (from mini, cubesats, to Moon based telescopes or large coordinated missions).
