Observational service tasks

The IAP is an Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers (OSU) [Observatory for the Sciences of the Universe]. As such, it takes part in providing national observational services which are defined on a national level by the Institut National de l’Univers (INSU) [National Institute for the Sciences of the Universe], and for the benefit of the international astronomical community. These services branch out into scientific tasks. These are particularly important for astronomers who are hired and evaluated by the Conseil National des Astronomes et Physiciens (CNAP) [National Council of Astronomers and Physicists].
Here is the list of national observational services identified and recognized by INSU within the framework of the Actions Nationales pour l'observation en Astronomie-Astrophysique. A database of the observational services can be searched by OSU.


The IAP is involved in observational services within the Actions Nationales ANO-2, ANO-4, and ANO-5.
