Outreach & Edu


The Institute for Radio Astronomy has always been intensively engaged in the dissemination and teaching of astronomy with schools and the public, focusing communication on its specific research themes, such as astronomy in the radio band and astronomical observing techniques.

Since the 1980s, school groups and general public have been visiting the observing facilities of Medicina and Noto, accompanied by IRA researchers and technologists.
