EVN Programme Committee

The EVN Programme Committee (PC) meets three times per year in order to consider requests for observing time on the EVN. The PC distributes a Call for Proposals three times per year with submission deadlines of 1 Febuary, 1 June, and 1 October.  Since 1 August 2021 the chairman of the EVN PC is Zsolt Paragi (JIVE, Dwingeloo). 

The PC meets shortly after each deadline and communicates its results to the proposers. The list of observing proposals approved by the EVN PC for the most recent deadline is available online.

As well as evaluating proposals, the PC discusses other issues of relevance to EVN observing.
