Guest Investigators for 2017-2018

The Guest Investigator Program is available to promote the use of PROBA2 data. After an eighth call for Ideas in September 2017, the Guest Investigators for the period Dec 2017 until December 2018 were selected by an indepnedent comittee.

The selected Guest Investigators, and their (provisional) research topic, for the period Dec 2017 to Dec 2018 are the following:
