International scientific projects
- European VLBI Network (EVN) – a network of radio telescopes located primarily in Europe and Asia, with additional antennas in South Africa and Puerto Rico, which performs very high angular resolution observations of cosmic radio sources.
- RadioAstron – radio interferometric observations with Russian satellite Spectr-R, equipped with a 10-m radio telescope.
- RadioNet – European Commission projects to support European Radio Astronomy.
- Low-Frequency Array for radio astronomy (LOFAR) – network of radio antennas located in different European countries (3 in Poland), that works at MHz frequencies.
- The Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) – is the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere and among the largest in the world. It has a hexagonal primary mirror array 11 metres across.
- High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) – world’s largest observatory for studying very high energy gamma-ray astrophysics.
- Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) – an initiative to build next generation ground based gamma-ray observatories (on ESFRI).
- Advanced Telescope for High Energy Astrophysics (ATHENA) – is the X-ray observatory mission selected by ESA, within its Cosmic Vision programme, to address the Hot and Energetic Universe scientific theme.
- Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) – an initiative to build a telescope that will produce the deepest, widest, image of the Universe.
- RoboPol – an initiative to build and operate a unique polarimeter that is currently mounted on 1 .3-m telescope of the Skinakas Observatory.
