Jan. 16, 2014. SOLARNET TAS: Users Assessment 2013

The SOLARNET Transnational Access and Service Programme (TAS) supports the access to some of the best European telescopes (VTT, GREGOR, THEMIS, and SST). A total of 8 observing teams were supported under the 2013 TAS campaign. User teams awarded with telescope time received a brief questionnaire to assess the quality of the access and service provided.

The questionnaire was distributed among Principal Investigators and astronomers supported with travel and subsistence grants. 12 astronomers (80 %) answered the questionnaire. The majority of the specific aspects related to the services provided by the infrastructure were assessed with the highest rating.

The overall appreciation of the services provided was considered as ‘very good’ by 8 astronomers, and ‘good’ by the other 4.
