The Irish LOFAR Consortium has received its strongest support to date from a number of Irish Government agencies and the International LOFAR Consortium. Science Foundation Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy, Discover Science & Engineering, and the Office of the Government Chief Scientist have all expressed their support for this exciting international project. Furthermore, the Institute of Physics and the International LOFAR Consortium are also strongly supportive.
The Letters of Support can be downloaded by clicking on the scanned letters shown below and to the right. They have also been included in the I-LOFAR white paper.
Our focus is now on raising funds to make I-LOFAR a reality. We are considering a number of options, including the EU and philanthropic foundations. Please contact Dr. Peter T. Gallagher if you or your organisation would like to contribute to the I-LOFAR project.
