The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics (KIAM), on behalf of the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 14 June 2019. The objective of this MoU is to provide the opportunity for selected academic and research institutions in developing countries to receive small telescopes and training to operate them free of charge. UNOOSA and KIAM are working on this Announcement of Opportunity (AO), expected to be published in early 2020. The selected institutions will benefit from the experience of ISON and will have the chance to take part in global observation campaigns and distribute observation data openly and freely.


The Announcement of Opportunity will be posted on the Access to Space 4 All pages on the UNOOSA website
