ESA Archival Research Visitor Programme

To increase the scientific return from its space science missions, the European Space Agency (ESA) welcomes applications from scientists interested in pursuing research projects based on data publicly available in the ESA Space Science Archives.

The ESA Archival Research Visitor Programme is open to scientists, at all career levels, affiliated with institutes in ESA Member States and Collaborating States. Early-career scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. Research projects can be carried out at ESAC (Madrid) and at ESTEC (Noordwijk). During their visits, lasting 1-3 months, visiting scientists will have access to archives and mission specialists for help with the retrieval, calibration, and analysis of archival data. ESA covers travel costs from and to the home institution and provides support for lodging expenses and meals.

Applications received before 30 April 2021 will be considered for visits in autumn/winter (2021/2022)
