The LIA ERIDANUS is the result of an international agreement between Mexican and French institutes. Its motivation is to:
- support and further develop existing collaborations in astronomy;
- train new students in astronomy;
- support instrumental R&D including by preparing the emergence of new common projects in instrumentation.
The agreement has been signed in May 2018 in Mexico. It may support exchanges of researchers (short and mid-term visits), Mexican-French meetings & workshops, and all collaborative activities between researchers. Mutual long visits and co-PhD grants will be highly welcomed and promoted.
