WELCOME TO THE JOINT CENTER FOR ULTRAVIOLET ASTRONOMY
Welcome to the Joint Center for UltraViolet Astronomy (JCUVA).
Our primary task is to provide support for the joint use of the WSO-UV premises at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM).
The Spanish-Russian Joint Center for Ultraviolet Astronomy (JCUVA) main task is to support the joint use of the World Space Observatory UV (WSO-UV) premises at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM). The JCUVA hosts the facilities required for conducting the WSO-UV science operations run by Russia and Spain. Its activities also comprise the joint management of the WSO-UV science program.
The JCUVA activities derive from the general collaboration agreement signed by Spain and the Russian Federation in 2007, aimed at the development of the World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet (WSO-UV), and from the agreement signed in 2017 between the Institute of Astronomy of the Russian Academy of Sciences (INASAN) and the UCM, aimed to the joint management of the WSO-UV project science program.
The JCUVA also hosts the GNUVA website, the site for the UV Astronomy worldwide community.
