ESO Outreach Partner Organisations
ESO Outreach Partner Organisations (EOPO) are members of an exclusive partnership initiated by the European Southern Observatory to recognise the efforts of selected planetariums, science centres and other informal educational institutions. These are organisations which collaborate regularly with ESO’s education and Public Outreach Department (ePOD) on informal education and outreach projects, events or campaigns. Examples are, for instance, the GigaGalaxy Zoom project and Hubble’s 15th and 20th anniversaries.
The growing list of Outreach Partner Organisations is also a means through which ESO can stay connected with its partner organisations and increase the outreach synergy between them and ESO. Last, but not least, it is an opportunity that will help to enhance the reputation of all partners and increase the visibility of their outreach and educational activities.
EOPO members receive a series of benefits, among which are free or discounted ePOD products, access to relevant and timely information, visibility on eso.org and other community channels, networking with other local ESO representatives or partners etc.
Organisations can apply to become ESO Outreach Partner Organisations by emailing the Community Coordinator Oana Sandu. If you want to stay in touch with the latest information and outreach resources from ESO, you can subscribe to our Outreach Community Newsletter, which is sent out monthly via e-mail, starting July 2011.
