Overview of Grants

PLEASE NOTE: The AstroSim Programme is now closed


AstroSim provides a range of funding for activities in the broad context of Computational Astrophysics. The funding can cover travel, accommodation, event rooms etc. However funding is primarily for European Scientists. In special cases overseas visitors could be funded if they are invited to visit several institutes for example.

Priority will be given to activities that involve code and algorithmic development, parallelization, hardware GPUs, turbulence/mixing, code comparisons, magnetohydrodynamics, treatment of microphysics.

Applications for grants may be submitted at any time.
Decisions are made by the steering committee, usually within a month.

Funding for travel, collaborative visits, sabbaticals etc can be made at anytime and decisions will be returned on a short time scale.

The application forms are on the ESF website. Please see each submenu item for further details.
